Some ideas incorporated in our work have grown with us over time and have become familiar, while others emerge as new from a creative response to an ongoing dialogue between informing factors. These include the landscape or urban context, the site and its location, climate, orientation, views, environmental sensitivities as well as the universal social and architectural debate. A combination of the above, a strong focus on client requirements and aspirations and a general attempt to relate functional requirements to form, can be seen as the basis of our design approach.
