Hollmén Reuter Sandman Architects’ focus is on both environmental and aesthetic sustainability. Environmental sustainability is achieved by using local, recycled and renewable materials as much as possible and designing site specifically according to the local climate. The aesthetic sustainability is born from the functionality, the culture, how the building fits into the environment, how the plan follows the local space hierarchy.

In 2007 the group founded a non-governmental organisation named Ukumbi, focusing on the work in developing countries. The mission is to offer architectural services for communities in need. Architecture can be a powerful way of mitigating poverty and empower the community and increase its self-esteem.
