We believe that one solution rarely fits all; rather our approach embraces diversity, allows individual expression and ensures that design solutions are environmentally responsive and appropriate to context, brief, culture and climate. The simple resolution of light, space and materials are the core values of our design approach.
We believe in a concept-led approach to design. The concept acts as a framework to hold a project together from the initial stages to detail design and ultimately through to project delivery. It is important that a design concept is robust, legible and realistic so that it can be applied from strategic design to completion without diluting its power and relevance in the face of layers of complexity and technical challenges.
Great design is about achieving a balance and tension between creativity and practicality and solving problems simply and elegantly by intelligent thinking. High quality buildings rely on teamwork through the intensive dialogue with clients, consultant bodies, contractors and end-users. We believe in open frank discussions and a ‘no-ego’ approach to design.
