methods

We use state of the art tools and up to date knowledge to achieve our goals in architecture, design & urbanism

taxonomy

oRb has acquired expertise in various types of building and design, from private residential to public buildings and urbanism, from interior finishes to works of art in the public realm. Check out our portfolio for an overview of our work. We use common taxonomy, but we thrive our designs to exceed standards and classifications. We learn from every action we take and apply new ideas, solutions and typologies outside of the box.

Building Information Modeling

We use state of the art tools to achieve our goals. Our design software is IFC compliant and deploys Building Information Modeling from the first stages in the design, while maintaining artistic freedom. Generic elements are automated and based on ever increasing databases in order to optimize the workflow and minimize drafting time. Building Information Modeling is not only a way of drafting and information, but it is also a process, a way of working.

parametric design

In our practice we use parametric design tools which create an interactive link between design data and design output. All software – including top notch visualization software – is integrated into one studio environment. Our parametric tools include; grasshopper, karamba3d, ladybug, visualarq, elk, Una toolbox. Software we are experienced in include: autocad, draftsight, rhinoceros, sketchup, formZ, thearender, motiva colimo, photoshop, illustrator and indesign.
