RAU is internationally leading in the field of sustainability and circularity and responsible for the creation of many award-winning designs.
The firm realizes circular buildings that can serve as resource hubs in the future. A recent example is the fully circular headquarters of Triodos Bank,
which has won several awards. With his pioneering, circular projects in architecture and for industry, RAU founder Thomas Rau has set various standards for energy-positive and remountable building. The realized projects prove that Rau’s ideas are not just theoretical, but that circular building and entrepreneurship also pay off in practice.
