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
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.
