Architecture´s starting point must be the people who use it!
For POINT, architecture is only successful when it contributes positively to human quality of life.
As a sensual sensory device and social body, human beings are influenced by its surroundings. We prioritize the potential of human encounters with the architecture; with others - and with themselves. For us, social sustainability is the primary design parameter and a prerequisite for the development of the best possible society.
Architecture must consider the unique identity of the place!
Our architectural approach prioritizes highlighting the existing qualities of a place while developing the hidden or untapped potential. The relationship between new and old should have a symbiotic relationship, where the place informs the project and the architecture becomes a gesture for the place. With this approach, we strengthen the local anchorage and secure the environmental sustainability.
Architecture should not just be pragmatic, it must also be poetic!
Without giving up on functionality, an elegant architectural idea can activate the inherent poetry of a place, evoke the place from itself, and make people aware of their own sensual being, right there. We give priority to making architecture that generates positive emotions and memories. That creates long-lasting aesthetic solutions and economic value.
POINT creates poetic architecture that contributes positively to society and quality of life, maintaining a consistent level of high performance and integrity in all services.
POINT was founded in May 2013 by partners Laust Sørensen and Michael Droob, both graduates from the Royal Danish Art Academy’s School of Architecture, 2003.
