Philosophy

Architecture is about the art and science of building. It is not just about how they touch but how they are integrated, and if our buildings are deemed to look good, function well and are technically sound then we will have made a positive difference and changed people's lives for the better.
The blend of the art and science in design is what enables us to make our ideas elegant, real and usable and in doing so create buildings and places of value which stimulate aesthetic emotion, address the functional needs and meet the demands of technology.
To achieve these goals we believe we must understand how to build in order to design because many of our ideas are wasted if they cannot ultimately be built. It is important to harness the energy of the new idea and to push the boundaries through innovative thinking. It is an approach which must embrace the process and technology of construction as well as meet the financial parameters which have been set.
We believe architecture is about enriching the lives of individuals, organisations and businesses alike - places for living, healing, learning, working and socialising. It is about bringing together our design skills, our commercial awareness and our deep social consciousness.
Our approach to architecture extends into our work in masterplanning and interior design, from the macro requirements of setting out the basis for developing the design on a large site or complex to the detail of an internal space and execution of the finishes. It is recognising that design is a continuous, integrated process, which must have integrity and substance, and combine the art and science at all levels.
