We are interested in architecture that is honest in its relationship to people, environment, and time.
On January 2020. GAISS became one of the founders of the international climate movement's Architects Declare Latvia branch.
GAISS co-founder Kārlis Melzobs is a certified Passive House Designer. Passive House methods facilitate a design process that seeks contextual logic, be it a simple yet efficient low-budget project or a highly elaborate dwelling set out to meet all PH requirements.
