Unagru was founded as a network for discussion, description, and design related to the built environment. Unagru stands for one crane; one crane (family Gruidae) guarding a harsh industrial landscape was the embodiment of independence, grit, and resilience. On the other hand, the crane, the machine used for hoisting heavy objects is a fascinating combination of natural power and human technology that enables change. Unagru embodies and playfully embraces our hybrid technical and natural realm.  
We believe in space's ability to influence people's lives, affecting layers of perception that deserve research and attention. Our process focuses on defining the needs as much as providing solutions. Good design is an exciting, experimental and life-changing experience to both clients and designers. 

We like quality and make sure things work properly, energy stays inside, money and time are not wasted, and people are at the centre of the process.

We like cities and sustainability; we do research; we are members of The Green Register of Constriction professionals.
