We believe in the importance of design to the environment. We seek design which fits into its community and demonstrates the importance of architecture within our lives. Our approach is to explore each project as a challenge, using first principles of planning and design. We believe in communication as the means of understanding project goals, issues and factors. We seek to adapt, explore and understand issues within the development community. Our thirty year old firm of sixty staff is a closely-knit family of creative, investigative, analytical and communicative people, many of us working together for a long time now. We include registered architects, intern architects, architectural technologists, computer technologists, graphic artists and administration, working within teams which flexibly support and strengthen each other to meet project challenges and schedules.
