Good buildings and plans can adapt to changing needs in the future. In the life cycle of building parts we focus on those elements that have a long life. Especially in the structure, we need to find a good balance between today’s efficiency and tomorrow’s possibilities. Every time, we seek a balance between spaciousness, flexibility, size and cost.
Flexibility can be found on several levels. Not only in buildings, but also in urban plans. Neighborhoods and street need to be open for alternative purposes in the future. An urban plan needs to have a careful mix of ingredients. Mono-cultures are vulnerable, especially when it comes to livability. We seek living environments for many groups and activities, a recognizable diversity and unity in diversity. This way, people recognize their neighborhood and feel more responsible for it and for each other. FARO always tries to establish this diversity, the best guarantee for a good living environment.
