We activate cities
with a creative approach
to Real Estate

Marina Os. leverages Creative Industries to innovate Real Estate development. With our vision, a project is no longer just a building, but a magnet, destination and reference point. Using our passion for how cities evolve, we connect Real Estate projects to those who have the ability to fill that space with unique content. These culturally and artistically engaging projects create added value for both property owners and communities through their prestigious positioning and outreach.

We consult the Real Estate sector, engage with Creative Industries and develop sustainable bridges between these two very different fields.

We look at trending opportunities in each city, be it luxury Real Estate developments, apart-hotels, gastronomy or retail. We then conceptualise and help launch mix-use spaces, co-living and co-working environments, creating new trends with conceptual and communal spaces. We develop joint financial-conceptual bids to build spaces with conscientious developers who are considerate of the area, society, city, country and world their project will inhabit. Through our in-house capacity and a global network of partners, Marina Os. offers a one-stop service provider that sees a project from conception through to design, planning, contract negotiation, project management, quality control, marketing, and ongoing cultural programme management.
Marina Os. also initiates own projects to improve cities and communities using creative and sustainable concepts. Our projects contribute to exposing the full potential of the cities in which we operate by activating the creative economy to support sustainable development.

We offer a network of cross-disciplinary collaborators from around the world

With more than 20 years experience, Marina Os. has a strong international network across Real Estate, Cultural and Creative Industries. This allows us to access insights into trendsetting communities, collaborations with artists, designers, museums, galleries, publishers and producers, and solid relationships with the public sector, investors, opinion leaders and media.
