Means a design principle or working method. Our method is based on the usage of eight tools/the modi on the journey from concept to form, from idea to design, it helps us to get from the project task to implementation plan, in our own way.

For more complex projects, we mostly use multiple design principles, but we can consciously choose a single one, which opens new possibilities for us. Individual principles are complementary to one another, such as articulation and zoning, or, on the other hand, they are mutually exclusive, such as for example attraction and reconstruction, and are therefore always reconsidered within our own method. We are original in this, so we are Bruto.

* lat. modus operandi



noun: articulation
1. the formation of clear and distinct sounds in speech. “the articulation of vowels and consonants”
– the action of putting into words an idea or feeling.
plural noun: articulations
“it would involve the articulation of a theory of the just war”

Articulation, in art and architecture, is a method of styling the joints in the formal elements of architectural design … In highly articulated works, each part is defined precisely and stands out clearly. The articulation of a building reveals how the parts fit into the whole by emphasizing each part separately.

Through articulation, the space is divided into clearly separated, complete units. They usually coincide with zoning units or spatial programs. Elements of articulation are often communications with other linear or natural features.

any continuous area that differs in some respect, or is distinguished for some purpose, from adjoining areas, or within which certain distinctive circumstances exist or are established: The decisions were formulated in a zone of uncertainty. The temperature lies outside the danger zone.

Zoning is the process of dividing land in a municipality into zones in which certain land uses are permitted or prohibited. In addition, the sizes, bulk, and placement of buildings may be regulated. Zoning is the most common regulatory divider local governments use to help carry out urban plans.

In accordance with the project task and space analysis, the space is identified and divided into individual zones. These zones define the function or program purpose/content of an individual part of the space. The more complex the space, the more diverse it is in terms of its content.

1. the quality of dealing with ideas rather than events. “topics will vary in degrees of abstraction”

2. freedom from representational qualities in art. “geometric abstraction has been a mainstay in her work”

Abstraction in its main sense is a conceptual process where general rules and concepts are derived from the usage and classification of specific examples, literal (“real” or “concrete”) signifiers, first principles, or other methods.

Landscape elements are often included in projects in an abstract, stylized form. Through abstraction, we simplify the form or an element, we free it from excessive and narrative, as a simple form and conceptually pure designs are close to us.

Key project: Roof Park



1. the action or power of evoking interest in or liking for someone or something. “the timeless attraction of a good tune”

similar: allure, beauty, glamour, magic, fascination, enchantment

plural noun: attractions
2. a quality or feature that evokes interest, liking, or desire. “this reform has many attractions for those on the left”

3. a place which draws visitors by providing something of interest or pleasure. “the church is the town's main tourist attraction”

An amusement park is a park that features various attractions, such as rides and games, as well as other events for entertainment purposes. A theme park is a type of amusement park that bases its structures and attractions around a central theme, often featuring multiple areas with different themes. Unlike temporary and mobile funfairs and carnivals, amusement parks are stationary and built for long-lasting operation. They are more elaborate than city parks and playgrounds, usually providing attractions that cater to a variety of age groups. While amusement parks often contain themed areas, theme parks place a heavier focus with more intricately-designed themes that revolve around a particular subject or group of subjects.

We often create special spaces, kind of fantasy ambiences. We believe that space is attractive when it is multifaceted, interactive, colourful and playful. We look for elements that attract us. We play with stimuli that attract and direct images of interest.

Key project: Fountain



1. an explanation or way of explaining.
2. a stylistic representation of a creative work or dramatic role. “his unique interpretation of the Liszt études”

plural noun: interpretations
“this action is open to a number of interpretations”

– similar:
, understanding, reading
, explanation
, inference, 
conclusion, supposition

An interpretation in philosophy of art, is an explanation of the meaning of some work of art. An aesthetic interpretation expresses a particular emotional or experimental understanding most often used in reference to a poem, or piece of literature, and may also apply to a work of visual art, or performance.

We interpret certain typologies, ambiences of natural or designed landscapes in a modern way. In this case, it is not necessarily imitation, transplantation, or abstraction. It is an interpretation of a way of telling a story, highlight a detail, show the essence of a design of space.

1. geology. 
relating to the structure of the earth's crust and the large-scale processes which take place within it. “the movements of the tectonic plates”
2. relating to building or construction. “a contest of tectonic quality and public attractiveness”

Tectonics (from Latin tectonicus; from Ancient Greek τεκτονικός tektonikos, meaning “pertaining to building”) is the process that controls the structure and properties of the Earth's crust and its evolution through time.

We understand space in a very three-dimensional, plastic, sculptural way. We understand topography and use it as means of expression. We play with the landscape relief and simultaneously perceive its surface as both stable and flexible, as heavy and light, as a material and as a form. To us, space is a medium, it is canvas and material.

Key project: Underpass



1. rhetoric. imitation or reproduction of the supposed words of another, as in order to represent his or her character.
(in literature, film, art, etc.)
2. imitation of the real world, as by re-creating instances of human action and events or portraying objects found in nature:

Mimesis, basic theoretical principle in the creation of art. The word is Greek and means “imitation” (though in the sense of “re-presentation” rather than of “copying”). Mimesis is a term used in literary criticism and philosophy that carries a wide range of meanings which include imitatio, imitation, nonsensuous similarity, receptivity, representation, mimicry, the act of expression, the act of resembling, and the presentation of the self. In ancient Greece, mimesis was an idea that governed the creation of works of art, in particular, with correspondence to the physical world understood as a model for beauty, truth, and the good.

We often include landscape patterns, biotopes or individual elements of nature in our designs considering they are natural, original and perfect. We want to display and highlight them, we want them to be part of our projects. Because we simply like them.

1. to construct again; rebuild.
2. to assemble or build again mentally; re-create: reconstructed the sequence of events from the evidence.

Reconstruction is a term in architectural conservation whose precise meaning varies, depending on the context in which it is used. More broadly “reconstruction” means returning a damaged building to a known earlier state by the introduction of new materials. It is related to the architectural concepts of restoration (repairing existing building fabric) and preservation (the prevention of further decay), wherein the most extensive form of reconstruction is creating a replica of a destroyed building. Is “the act or process of depicting, by means of new construction, the form, features, and detailing of a non-surviving site, landscape, building, structure, or object for the purpose of replicating its appearance at a specific period of time and in its historic location.”

Cultural heritage and conservation rules require a particularly sensitive approach. The old needs to be restored in a way that preserves the qualities of time and additionally shines as a new image and with a new function. With a great sense of respect, we preserve and change the old, with a clear distinction as to what is new.
