We have a desire to be considered to be one of the best, not necessarily one of the biggest, and we have a design studio ethos that enables collaboration and participation with our clients, staff and consultants that promotes analytical and critical thinking as well as the advancement of talent. We want to win work on the strength and quality of our practice and projects, as well as the merit of our design and knowledge.
We want to make the built environment better than we found it – architecturally, socially and morally.
We try to create an emotional response to all our projects – passion, relevance and appropriateness.
We want to be at the vanguard of research, technology and sustainability to enable us to future proof our projects, on behalf of our clients and the general populace alike.
We believe that the whole of our practice is significantly greater than the sum of the individual parts, and to this extent we are by implication, not reliant on the individual but the collective competence of many. Yet this is still enforced with personal and professional commitment to the individuals and organisations to whom we serve.
We turn vision into action – and underpin action with vision
