ARCHITECTURE

We believe the best architecture comes from a synthesis of all the elements that separately comprise and inform the character of a building: the structure that holds it up; the services that allow it to function; its ecology; the quality of natural light; the symbolism of the form; the relationship of the building to the skyline or the streetscape; the way you move through or around it; and last but not least its ability to lift the spirits. By working together creatively from the start of a project, architects and engineers combine their knowledge to devise integrated, sustainable design solutions.

INteriors

By designing a building from the inside-out as much as from outside-in, we inculcate a sense of continuity and connection to the wider world. The starting point for any design solution is to gain an understanding of people's needs and the way in which a space will be used. The goal is the creation of interiors that both functional and elegant, while evoking a sense of place and complementing a building's outward expression.

urban design

The design of the public realm is arguably more significant than collective merits of the individual buildings. The Urban Design Team consists of specialists from a range of background - including landscape architecture, anthropology, economic development, sociology, urban analysis and computation, By gaining a detailed understanding of context, the team helps to develop projects that are tailored to specific socio-economic, climatic and spatial circumstances. 

project managment

Using the most up-to-date project management standards and tools, the project management team provide support to the construction teams. We play the key role throughout the construction and close out phases, from scheduling, time managing, change control, document control,payment and risk management.

visualization & rendering

The Visualization and Rendering Team produces architectural animations, visualizations, motion graphics and film for the practice for use at concept design phases, construction, marketing and final presentations.
