Our primary concern is to enrich the daily life of those that use and experience our work, by creating space and built volume with tangible presence. Each project seeks to understand and interpret the embodied language found in both the immediate and wider physical and social context it occupies. Historical, regional and cultural context will often be acknowledged in our response through both abstraction and redefinition for our time. This can result in a response that is both knowingly, yet often unknowingly, citing architectural language or tradition; perhaps through practised intuition and the visceral connection we all have with architecture and the environment in which we live. Whilst we are very much at the beginning of a body of work, each project undertaken seeks to represent a wider meaning or define an architectural standpoint so as to relevantly engage with architectural debate and its progression. A core characteristic of our work is the conscious exploration of the notion of craft; be it direct as a result of the hand, or abstracted through our increasing willingness to draw for fabrication – allowing us the potential for greater expression at varying scales. We believe our work has become richer through cherished and ongoing working relationships with master craftspeople, allowing our work to absorb and reframe traditions, often allowing the hand present to self-elevate the piece in question. Thoughtful and comprehensive working methods are relished with our work often comprising the production of total architectural environments.
