The exploration of new ideas is at the heart of what we do. Our designs are innovative; they often surprise but are always precisely tuned to the requirements of the client. Our work is based on an informed use of technology and materials and combines a commitment to the spirit of the new with an awareness of context. The buildings we produce come from a detailed understanding of the functions they must fulfill, the conditions they have to provide and the materials from which they are constructed. This understanding is directly translated into form and detail.
All our projects are reviewed at key stages of their design development. Objective criteria, such as environmental sustainability, are reviewed alongside more subjective design principles, appropriateness to context, composition and form. This scrutiny and debate ensures design quality is achieved across all projects.
