About Us

Our approach has been refined over time by a rich mix of things. From years of formal training and professional experience through to passion projects and collaborative work. All these have culminated in the mix we bring to our architecture. Craftsmanship, materials, problem-solving design, building and interiors are all part of who we are. Over the years we’ve not shied away from rolling up our sleeves. The discipline of being on site or in the workshop has taught us much that sitting behind a computer could not. A hand-crafted, hands-on approach has enabled us to learn and apply what really works. 

Our portfolio includes projects from the private, public and commercial sectors. We hope it communicates well to you our belief that when progressive design is fused with age old craft, some of the best ideas emerge. This includes exploring the latest technologies to deliver new possibilities. We are always careful to consider local materials and the vernacular to create buildings that settle well into their environments.
