It’s all about the experience

what-to-expect02

When you sit at our design table, here's what to expect.

Excited by the possibility of what could be? So are we.

In fact, our whole process is about opening up to new ideas and pushing beyond the predictable. Because even though we have done this many times before, we haven’t designed your exact project before. Whether it be making gutsy decisions or keeping things simple, every project calls for a different approach.

This openness is what you can expect when you choose us as your architects.

Your experience with us goes like this:

Honesty

This isn’t just a buzzword around here – it’s something you experience from your first encounter with us. We’re upfront about timeframes, budget and how feasible your ideas are. Well before we even talk about drawing up project contracts, you have time to get to know us and set clear expectations.

Pragmatism

There is no value in an idea that cannot be executed. That’s why we run our practice with the same systems used by large firms and have construction management skills in-house. Our architects are equipped with all the resources they need to test designs against budget, timelines and buildability.

Elevated Design

It might sound like software, systems and project management would stifle the design process … but they have the opposite effect. Because your project is so well organised, we can dedicate more time to design and less time to ad min. That means the time you pay for is spent making the design the best it can be.

Global Experience

You get the best of worlds: architects who know the local market intimately, yet draw on global experiences to depart from what has been done before. Past work in Chile, Spain, USA and Tokyo enriches our aesthetic and floorplans, and our network of skilled local craftspeople brings it all to life.

Materiality

Organic shapes, contrasting textures and sculpted natural materials infuse a space with energy. Inspired by your lifestyle, taste and the surrounding landscape, the materials, colours and textures we choose for your home will create a feeling of abundance.

Respect

Your ideas are valued and nothing is off limits (did we mention we once designed a home with hidden cat tunnels throughout?). So if something is important to you, it’s important to us – after all, this level of customisation is why you have chosen to work with an architect.
