Mei Context gif

Built and narrative history

Mei cherishes the history of the place and uses it in the design. At the start of each project, we delve into the local history: the background of existing buildings, on and around the location, and the images and stories that are part of our collective memory. We build on this by preserving structures, integrating physical objects and translating stories into recognisable elements.

In addition to the cultural importance, the economic value of building elements and materials will also play an increasingly important role in design and construction practice in the future. By reusing existing buildings where possible, we contribute to circularity in construction.
