A collaboration.

In the initial meeting, we discuss working methods and desired outcomes. Together, we review the site and design brief. This leads on to more detailed discussions throughout the design phase. The open communication and exchange of ideas leads to a good working relationship between architect and client.

We advise and empower our clients to engage in the design process.  This ongoing dialogue enables a tailored design and clarity of purpose  – key to a smooth transition from paper to built form.


A house is never just a house. It is not generic. We take the time to design in the specifics; site and ¬†urban context, planning/ heritage requirements and our client’s vision, ideals, their working method.

Design adds value; a balance of form and function, aesthetics with practicality. Good design is flexible, allowing for change over time, different needs, different times.

Some projects require attention to cultural considerations and this impacts on the design response.


Sometimes the design is not immediately obvious, but felt in the confluence of light and space.
