Mei loves existing buildings. We like to immerse ourselves in the cultural and architectural history of a building.

Delving into history in order to ensure that proposals for renewal draw naturally on existing qualities is something Mei takes for granted. Demonstrating this approach is the rich variety of building transformations carried out by the office, among them a number of projects to convert historic buildings that enjoy a protected status at municipal or national level.
