our core values

Design and Innovation

Our awarded and highly experienced team is dedicated to design-led innovation and continuous professional development, both at an individual level and as a business. This commitment is intrinsically linked to our ongoing investigation and implementation of technology relevant to our field, and for the benefit of each individual project.

Client Service

Above all, we respect our clients’ vision and maintain internal processes that ensure their needs are considered and addressed during all stages of design. We analyse opportunities and constraints, facilitate in-depth collaboration between our clients, consultants and contractors to formulate sustainable, fit for purpose, successful and often surprising built forms.


We are committed to reducing our collective carbon footprint and designing buildings that contribute positively towards a sustainable future. We incorporate passive design principles into all of our projects in keeping with the surrounding environment and commit to using local products, materials and service providers resources wherever possible.

Respect for Place

Appreciating, understanding and responding to the location we are designing for, is fundamental to our design approach. We take the time to visit each site and develop an in-depth understanding of the topography, visual cues, orientation and climate, as well as cultural considerations of the area. This is particularly relevant for our local projects in the tropics, which often present unique constraints in terms of weather resilience and year-round thermal comfort.
