Ask the right questions

Led by curiosity, we align what we see with what we know, mapping the context, distilling the brief and uncovering the inherent potential of both.

Fan the Spark

We set the direction for the project, consulting our references, developing a strategy and beginning to imagine a physical form to test against the brief.

Uncover the finer grain

With our collaborators we develop and refine the idea, exploring the haptic qualities of the project, and the specifics of look, feel and build.

Complete the circle

All buildings have a life far beyond completion, and we chart the impression our work leaves on environment, place and people for reference in future projects.
