Architecture, town planning,

urban communities

Rehabilitate neighborhoods, build collective housing, create urban parks or play areas... To carry out such projects, architects, urban planners, landscapers and other professionals combine their skills. Within BSE GROUP ETS, we work in teams.

Very extensive for working in architecture, town planning or landscaping.

Everywhere, the territory is evolving and becoming more complex. Behind these changes, architects, town planners and landscapers who use their skills while knowing how to dialogue with numerous partners.

Industrial Design

The practice has never drawn a distinction between architecture and industrial design. The point of contact, the thing that you touch, is as important as the broader vision. 

Frequently, products are designed in response to a particular project, but we also work directly with clients on product commissions or with companies to develop new products for commercial manufacture. 


Architecture must be forward looking and should aim to create the kind of world we would like to inhabit in the future. We believe design can be a catalyst for positive environmental change. Our work is an attempt to realize this vision and to produce buildings that are ahead of their time. The practice integrates the skills of architecture with engineering, both structural and environmental, urbanism, interior and industrial design, model and film making, geometry, materials research and many more – our collegiate working environment is similar to a compact university. By working together from the outset, we learn from one another and combine our knowledge to devise fully integrated design solutions. 

Urban and
Landscape Design

Designing at the urban scale is a complex undertaking, whether it involves a masterplan for a city, a regeneration scheme for a neighborhood, or planning a new public transport system. Our team includes planners and spatial designers, economists and anthropologists, and landscape architects and mobility engineers, working together to create thriving and resilient environments. In this era of unprecedented social, technological, and environmental change, our approach anticipates the evolutionary changes and rapid transformations shaping our urban environments. 

structural Engineering

An integrated design approach generates more innovative and sustainable outcomes. To build sustainably requires us to design holistically, where engineering is integrated from the outset of the design process. The practice has two in-house engineering groups, with a focus on environmental and structural engineering. Working alongside design teams in an open, collaborative environment, the groups strengthen the studio’s environmental agenda, capabilities and commitment to integrated design. 

Environmental Engineering

Environmental Engineering conceives the fundamental belief that environmental systems must be conceptualised in harmony with the architecture to support sustainable development. There are many aspects to the team’s work including: MEPF engineering; Sustainable environmental design and analysis; Architectural lighting design; Vertical and horizontal transportation; Sustainable environmental master planning; Infrastructure engineering.


The principles of sustainable design have always been integral to the work of the practice. The Sustainability acts as a catalyst, finding ways to advance our sustainable design processes and offer thought leadership. The development of sustainability strategies for projects in conjunction with the design teams. Our approach is holistic, working to nurture innovation and enabling every project to meet the highest possible performance standards.

The Sustainability employs Responsibility Framework across all projects. The framework measures sustainability performance and captures and shares key data as evidence. This ensures that progress across all projects can be tracked, audited and reported. Information provided by Sustainability Assessors within the project teams.

This framework covers ten important themes: Wellbeing, Community impact, Energy and carbon, Mobility and connectivity, Materials and waste, Water, Land and ecology, Prosperity, Planning for change, and Feedback.

The team reviews all projects from the outset and throughout their lifecycle. The initial conversations align client values with sustainable outcomes and setting a balanced and holistic approach to the ten themes. Working with the project teams, we explore different sustainable approaches – the opportunities they bring and risks they avoid – and recommend core values, showing how they may be integrated within the overall design intent.

Project Management

Project Management provide key support to the design teams, enabling use of the most up-to-date project management standards implemented by the practice.  We work closely with the client and identify project objectives at the earliest stages. We support and empower teams to deliver their design objectives, while helping to maintain positive, long-lasting client relationships.


By designing a building from the inside-out as much as from the outside-in, we inculcate a sense of continuity and connection to the wider world. The starting point for any design solution is to gain an understanding of people’s needs and the way in which a space will be used. The goal is the creation of interiors that are both functional and elegant, while evoking a sense of place and complementing a building’s outward expression.
