Look before you design
We continually observe and connect with the urban and natural worlds, storing clues and references to inspire projects as yet unknown.
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.
Match technique and idea
As construction begins, we stay with the project, working with its makers to make sure our design, social and environmental intent is understood and retained.
