The architecture firm was established by Michael Donalds on 2004. The business has gradually grown and today we take care of all types of large and small projects in sectors including segments of public buildings, residential, detail and urban planning, interior design, etc.
We work with precision and passion, and will assist you during the entire process – from the first sketches to a finished and functional end product.
We prefer to work and solve the problems together, this way we take advantage of each employee’s specific skills and experience.
In our multi-cultural working environment, we like very much to fuse together the Åland building tradition with modern functional solutions.
