Our remarkably talented team is constantly stretching its capacity to collaborate withour clients in order to produce extraordinary and world class results.

We believe in a direct approach to design and problem solving that might be described as‘creative collaboration’. We see our clients as collaborators in a seamless dialoguethat extends throughout the life of the project. We listen carefully in order todocument client strategies and aspirations. We explore both straightforward andunexpected solutions while confirming that the design can be realised within client’sbrief and project budget.

We understand the social and economic forces currently shaping communities and theirimpact on built environments of the future. Our founders were the innovators of theirtime, and we are leaders in the debate on how and where we work, meet, live, learn and heal

Design methodology underpins every aspect of the design. While the design solution mustmeet a broad range of criteria – environmental, social, functional, financial – theclarity and integrity of the design concept is the principal driving force in designdevelopment.
