Through our architecture we give form to our values. In the environments where we work, we find irreplaceable value in the shapes and textures rendered by sun, wind and water as time has passed. By taking the time to immerse ourselves in these environments, we are making sure that our architecture will become an authentic part of the future.
As well as being of its place, our architectural form giving is true to those who commission and occupy it. We tailor our buildings to the needs of our clients and to the needs of future inhabitants and see our role as synthesising diverse needs into a coherent whole that will exceed expectations and offer delight.
In the creation of our buildings we test ideas, map images, make models, sketch, draw and write. We also read, listen, debate and challenge – and, because we are curious, we observe and analyse. Knowledge and clear thinking combined with intuition and emotion drives our pursuit of extraordinary ideas and innovative solutions that are both technically astute, efficient and sustainable.
Within our practice, architecture is integrated into a wider design studio of associated professions, helping us to achieve our purpose of advancing the relationships between land, people and culture. We employ architecture to build community, to house, to transport, to elevate the spirit and to reward adventure. Our architecture is human-centred and evolves from a deep response to place.
