Link Lab stands for collaborative development with experts, stakeholders and users. Our method aims to involve as many stakeholders as possible early in the design process. Co-creation workshops result in new value through shared ideas and direct communication.

DESIGN &
RESEARCH

We link people, ideas and spaces. We break open the known
structures, thought patterns and methods to create an open
platform for spatial design and research. We look beyond the
traditional disciplines of architecture, urbanism, interior
design and landscaping to include a broader scope adapted
to each project: communication, process management,
participation, branding…

SPACE
AS A
RE-
SOURCE

We treat space as a (limited) resource. Link Lab aims to take responsibility in how we use space, both built and unbuilt. We make conscious choices of where we and how we build, concentrating on how to rethink and re-use existing spaces and buildings.
