“ARHING inženjering” exists since 1990. Continuously operating in practice, which resulted in the realization of over 100 objects of various purposes. Realizing the reality of all the parameters of the environment in which it is created, the result is the acceptance of our design concept with respect. Understanding the investor and his needs leads to a positive interaction in the design process, because we are aware of the fact that usable space is a generator of architectural creativity.
Participation in competitions resulted with the realization of several significant buildings. Awards and recognitions, which have come as a result of dedicated work, are encouraging, but we are also aware that they are binding. Understanding architecture as a sublime act of creation “from nothing” into something material and usable, we always want to add something new to what has already been seen through the research process. What has been “already seen” and encountered tends to be transposed through the prism of the present time and contemporary needs.
This is how an architecture of continuity is created, which consciously resists the globalization of everything that exists. From such an attitude, we strive to create architecture with character, a sublimated life experience in which the collective unconscious is recognized with complex habits, topos and civilizational deposits that give a stamp to every environment. 

Today, in addition to associate engineers, our team consists of architects with experience as well as a young team:
