Small site or difficult terrain

Use lateral thinking to exploit the spatial and sculptural possibilities of compact but well crafted and elegant forms. Work with rather than against the terrain, leveraging unexpected opportunities

Design for connection with nature

Forge a strong connection with nature, a serene oasis, even while positively engaging with and enhancing a vibrant urban environment (yes, this really is possible, right in the city – some of the strongest and most moving experiences in architecture link these two opposites on some level)

Design to convince a tough audience

Design with integrated and responsive 3D visuals and written outcomes, to get hard to please tenants, investors and other stakeholders on board.

‘Mixed Use’ done well

Achieve a vibrant mixture of commercial and residential activities on the same site, without compromising either

Future proofing

Build in flexibility to accommodate the accelerating rate of change in building use patterns and servicing.

Express who YOU are

Design to reflect your artistic and aesthetic sensitivity, spirituality, environmental views and lifestyle aspirations, without compromising practicality

Harmonize conflicting requirements

Accommodate elegantly what might otherwise dominate and diminish your experience. For example make best use of the sun, while protecting from the prevailing wind and nosy neighbours.  

Make money for you

Maximising resale value while minimising cost – a lot easier if the design is good
