PROJECTS

WHAT WE OFFER

Within each of these offerings we follow the principles of ‘slow design’, living building future’s seven petal principles and co-creative expression.

 

 

RESIDENTIAL

Together with you, we take the time to understand what is your authentic relationship with self and home; the spaces, overall feel and flow of built form, land and the spaces in between. We respond to this knowledge to shape and mould the design to strengthen your sense of place and in doing so, support you in living the life you were intended to live.

COMMUNITY

ART, HERITAGE, CULTURAL CENTRES
We explore how ‘place’ celebrates connections with others and with our environment. Simultaneously we seek to create a platform to nourish culture and preserve heritage. All within the intent to build and strengthen a community’s identity, mana and sense of belonging.

THERAPEUTIC

HEALTH CENTRES, RETREATS, CELEBRATION PLACES – BIRTH TO DEATH AND BATHING PLACES
Therapeutic architecture brings the wisdom and knowledge from all aspects of life together and creates a harmonious existence that supports and promotes health and wellbeing. It explores how to restore balance within each of us, restore balance in our relationships with others and our environment.

SCULPTURE & CREATIVE LAND WORK

We help strengthen people’s relationship with the land, what is being expressed there and what wants to be expressed. We act as the bridge between the caretakers, the land and the people who experience it. We play with shifting people’s perception to help acknowledge beauty and meaning in the moment of experience.

PERSONALISED WORK SPACES

We take a similar approach to residential and aim to get to know you and your needs – we call this way of working ‘slow design’ and though this process we seek to creatively express this in an unique and individualised way. A good outcome for us is that on arriving work you involuntarily smile and feel inspired.
