The firm's design expertise is in their ecological approach for the design of large projects and buildings that include consideration given to their impacts on the site's ecology and the building's use of energy and materials over its life-cycle. Much of the firm's early work pioneers the passive low-energy design of skyscrapers, as the 'bioclimatic skyscraper'.
