Our Philosophy

SOMA measures progress in human terms and in this way, we cultivate the conditions for economic success. We design cities and neighborhoods that are inclusive, promote health for people and the planet, and create opportunities for connection. We believe the future of urbanity is in sustainable, experience-oriented development with a social conscience. SOMA’s work involves a quality that can only be achieved with meticulous attention to detail, constant focus on improvement, passion for each initiative, and global partnerships with like-minded people. We believe in utilizing the most advanced technology, always taking into consideration the human and ethical perspectives.
