Collaborations with architects, artists and designers have resulted in many projects that are interesting not only from an architectural viewpoint ­but have also won many awards while bearing witness to an outstanding spirit of innovation and enthusiasm. 

For Thomas’ team, no design challenge is unattainable and no specialist field too complex. For this reason, Atelier One is a “testing lab” for structural engineering with an excellent international reputation and can be expected to continue providing extra­ordinary responses to the question “Why not?” in the future.
