We consider our physical context as a working field, woven of architectural historic layers and spatial sequences, that mediates between private and public space.

This working field frames the creation of each project. The building programme, site, light and structure then determines the unique nature of the project. Simultaneously this approach ensures the creation of the culturally sustainable, relevant and architectural, characterful place.
