Engagement is where it all begins and ends. Faro seeks projects in which we can make a difference for both users and society. Faro believes in engaging with end users in the design process. Listening to the users and explaining what we endeavor to realize with our designs. Together achieving the optimal design.
Listening can be organized. FARO has a long history of work in processes of active end-user participation. We also have a track record of researching what is appreciated and how buildings and living environments are valued. (see www.architectuursmaaktest.nl and www.smaaktesthaarlem.nl). With the results of these test we design the detailed and green environments that are valued most.
With or designs, we seek increased engagement between users and their environment. We connect people with their surroundings. The surroundings engender a distinct meaning for people so they take better care of their living environment. An environment where any individual feels at home, but one that also leaves space for meeting others and creating social cohesion.
