Metaform ia a Luxembourg-based architecture office, established for since 2006 in the heart of Luxembourg City.

By regular site survailing mechanism, concerned with the quality of all its constructions, Metaform aims to guarantee a good execution of works in order to respect the very essence of the project, concieved from the very beginning.
The office is composed mainly of competent architects who have acquired their experience either in important offices in Luxembourg, prior to joining Metaform, or architects trained in house from their beginning. Luxembourg legislation is therefore a daily ”tool” for the design and implementation of various projects.
Simple approach and clear design language are our main focus at Metaform. Each project, through the program and place, has appropriate architectural, design and formal response, leading to unique identity. The style is never predetermined. A building does not stand alone. It equally belongs to its neighbors, street, public space…to the city itself. To develop and construct a
building is a social act. The formal and aesthetic approach of architecture is not a goal in itself, but results from the analysis of human needs and the dialogue with its surroundings.
The range of activities at Metaform varies from urbanism to detail design, together with different landscape and housing research
