WeCare focuses on responsible architecture that cultivates society.
Our practice is centered around good intentions, for the client, the surrounding area (context) and the planet. A successful project is when we find a harmony that unites these three respectfully, within a reasonable budget. To do that we aim to find a solution that complements the life of the users. That is why research is important to us, because we want to offer better than the standard. In our research we focus on both global and local trends. Find out more about the topics that we work on in the research tab.

In the case of the environment, legislation is starting to push towards progress. What is needed are intelligent solutions that fit the local climate (bioclimatic), the life of the users (self-sufficiency / energy-transition) and the impact on the planet (ecological footprint / circular-economy).
