Good design brings joy to the people who use it. We use the tools of natural light, air, and space in our projects to inspire happiness and a sense of contentment.
Through thoughtful design that emerges from an understanding of how people use spaces, we aspire to enrich the lives of users and add value to their endeavours.
An old-school, rational approach guides our design and thought process — its development, however, is determined by a highly technical outlook that amalgamates with cutting-edge technology. From full-scale mock-ups to long-term material studies, we utilise an array of digital and analogue tools to test the technical flexibility of all ideation.
From conception to detail, every aspect of an Architecture Discipline project is meticulously designed to craft a holistic experience. We design a building from the inside-out as much as from the outside-in, inculcating a sense of continuity and connection with the wider world. A careful balance between scale and intimacy marks our work, and we bring this understanding to the design of urban spaces, architecture, interiors, and products.
Our diametric approach stretches across two ends of the spectrum, interacting with the old through historic regeneration and adaptive reuse, and the new through greenfield projects. These diverse influences and learnings are cross-referenced in our projects across scale and functional criteria.
our projects are designed as functional and energy-efficient frameworks. In the past, buildings were designed to emote or perform — today, they must do both. We rationalise consumption patterns to use resources optimally, creating enduring spaces that are environmentally conscious.
Architecture does not begin and end with the building; rather, it creates frameworks within which our lives unfold. As users and their sensibilities change, so do our spaces — robust and flexible, they adapt to the evolving needs of the people who use them.
This approach accounts for product life cycles and serviceability, resulting in buildings and interiors that are designed for longevity and programmed for change. The essence of these spaces lies in the positive and liveable environments that they foster: capturing light, air, and a sense of optimism for the future.
Architecture does not consist of isolated shells, but spaces that are a part of the larger urban fabric. The space between buildings is as important as the space within them — the latter belongs to the public, engendering the pleasure of belonging and the seduction of anonymity.
We create buildings that define and relate to their surroundings, grounded in the fine balance between public and private, often allowing the two realms to cross and overlap.
