Design Philosophy

We are continually looking at new opportunities to develop conceptual ideas that each project and client brief provides which we can combine with the site conditions, light ,space planning, technologies, and an appropriate materials palette to express an Architecture of place. Each of our projects are different and do not to follow a formulaic response .Some are large and complex and others less so.

We think it’s important to be aware of and observe others work elsewhere, both locally through the Awards programs and internationally, and how it might be applied in the NZ context. Our library is well stocked with numerous publications of both local and international Architecture on which to draw from. The practice is influenced by the ideas of Architects such as The Group, Wardle, Hill, Wright, Aalto, Schindler, Neutra & Zumthor to name a few.
