From inception the practice was unorthodox, hence it was imperative to have a firm that designed as a studio. The term “studio” is extremely critical in this context. “Studio” is generally associated with the creative field. In architecture exchange of multiple ideas especially in a studio environment has the potential to greatly enhance the final outcome. The design process looked to transcend the obvious to create a more pleasurable and sensorial experience, buildings that celebrate life and thereby make strong statements, statements that create a sense of identity not only for themselves but also their users. What was critical in achieving this was to create an environment which encouraged discussion.
With the average age of the studio being under 30, a lot of fresh ideas are thrown onto the table, with results that create ‘new’ spaces that stimulate as well as address the core idea of architecture being experiential. The spirit of speculation manifests itself into strategic processes which enable projects to evolve from conceptual ideas to sophisticated finished products. This process based rigor can be sensed in all the projects. Regardless of the scale, the ambition for each project is the same; this ambition is laced with a certain sensibility, a sensibility that helps us achieve new spatial and formal effects.
We are a young and dynamic practice that works across all architectural disciplines. We continue having fun doing what we love best – designing.
