concrete consists of 5 fundamental building blocks:
concrete interiors, concrete architecture, concrete tomorrow, concrete today and concrete heritage.
concrete develops total concepts for businesses and institutions. the agency produces work which is commercially applied. this involves creating total identities for a company, a building or an area. the work extends from interior design to urban development integration and from the building to its accessories.
good design always starts with good analysis. a truly functional design must always be accompanied by an appropriate and stimulating concept. we live in a rapidly changing world with new lifestyles that demand radically different solutions than those that were offered one or two generations ago. this all happens from the ‘one concept’ philosophy.
the designers of concrete create holistic plans and everything they design is used for the benefi t of that total concept: that’s where their strength – and thus the client’s greatest advantage – lies.
