bau design studio strongly believes a good architectural design requires a strong design principle.  A conceptual approach that is similar from a scientific perspective, where atoms are made up of particles, has been applied.  Spaces are put together in a meaningful configuration illustrating a specific lifestyle of the owner, creating a spatial experience for the users, and describing a volumetric relationship among spaces.  These elements work coherently together to create “places” from spaces.
