Perspective EEIG is a network of architectural practices working together internationally, established by five practices in 1992 in response to the globalisation of the business environment. Today's Perspective team brings together more than 250 skilled individuals, from practices in Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the UK.
Perspective EEIG's goal is to offer multinational clients global professional services in conjunction with proven dependable local partners. Its members have collaborated on many projects and through sharing expertise have developed and improved as individual practices, as well as contributing to the group's success.
Furthermore, its clients have benefited from a seamless service across borders and the convenience of working with familiar consultants in markets remote from their base of operations.
Group projects completed and under way include:
residential developments in Spain (Ibiza and Carabanchel, Madrid) and the Netherlands; corporate office fit-outs in Paris, Madrid, Milan, Lisbon and Frankfurt; masterplanning of a biotechnical centre in Stockholm; a research campus north of Hasselt (Belgium);
a joint research centre in Ispra (Italy); and a competition-winning project for the restructuring and extension of the French Embassy in Madrid. Exciting landmark projects also include the competition for the design of a new campus in Paris for the French TV company Canal+ and a masterplan for the regeneration of the Danube embankment in Bratislava.
All of Perspective's members are established practices in their own countries, providing independent architectural and related services nationwide to a uniformly high standard. They share the same professional and business ethics, and are committed to the aims and objectives of the group. Working together, members will typically assume the role of 'client architect' for project assignments in other countries, or 'local architect' providing support to the 'client architect' in the country where the project takes place.
In addition to architecture, the group's skills include: town planning; transport and infrastructure planning; masterplanning;
space planning; landscape design; energy conservation; interior design; environmental design; and planned maintenance.
Specialist working groups meet on a regular basis to develop and promote the practice's knowledge and expertise in areas such as sports and leisure; retail; hotels; housing; corporate offices; industries; sustainable planning and architecture; renovation and refurbishment; urban planning; and design.
Through individual members' associated practices, Perspective extends its network beyond Europe around the world.
