W..R. Lethaby described an architecture that was ‘one thousand men deep’, grounded in the cultural past, relevant to the present and constructed with “sweetness, simplicity, freedom, confidence and light”. This philosophy resounds in our search for an architecture that strives to Make Things Better.
We feel that we should create a more Enduring Architecture that adds to our culture, our community and to ourselves. We need to explore the world and learn from our environment in order to find a balance; to design buildings and spaces that are sustainable, flexible, and responsible.
