What’s wrong with architecture?

Imagine walking into a dealership to buy a new car. But in this dealership, the sales rep can’t give you a price up front, no meaningful guarantee of quality, and isn’t sure when the car will be ready to drive away. What do you do? Go somewhere else probably…

It may sound like a joke, but this is what the customer is faced with when commissioning any building project these days. Nobody would buy anything like that in any other walk of life. It’s madness made into a contract. And apparently this is inevitable. We don’t accept that. You shouldn’t either.

Good Ideas: How we Work and How we Think

Putting people at the centre of design

What can a James Bond film tell you about good design process?

Why we should make buildings like NASA makes rockets.

In contrast to the current trend toward short term planning and ideas, we believe in long term, long run, long lasting, “Longform” thinking. Therefore, we work with clients before, during, and after the building is completed.

We provide full architectural services using Human-Centred Design approaches and smart procurement techniques like Integrated Project Delivery and Unified Building Agreements.

However, the sectors we excel in are below. Click below for great information:

We use hard work, imagination, and experience to develop ways of designing and building that make things better.

We work with people and organisations from around the globe who want to affect real change.
