Mission Statement (b+) is a collaborative architecture practice that operates at the intersection of theory and praxis, and across different media and formats. The practice seeks to engage with the contemporary challenges of our time, particularly those related to social-ecological transformation and adaptive reuse of existing buildings, with ecologically and economically viable answers.

b+ understands architecture as an open process, and views buildings as part of larger systems that require a systemic approach. The practice sees the given framework of existing buildings and legislation as an active design tool that carries the potential for transformation within. Thus, b+ celebrates the potential of the existing built environment, and aims to reveal and activate the latent potentials that lie within.

b+ draws on a collaborative model, which emphasizes the idea of working with different actors and stakeholders in the development of projects. The practice values their knowledge and expertise and aims to create spaces for exchange and collaboration. b+ seeks to advance a new value system in architecture, one that places greater emphasis on collective responsibility, systemic thinking, and ecologically and economically viable solutions.
