+ Our initiatives
Our investments extend beyond our people and design resources. We constantly challenge ourselves to be at the leading edge of the profession, investing in cutting edge research and development projects.
We are working on self-funded initiatives to develop and showcase innovative design ideas, technologies and materials. Much of this research is related to the effect of buildings on all the human senses, an approach that has been described as ‘Sixth Sense Architecture’.
These projects push boundaries and, where appropriate, we translate them back into our commercial work, offering them to clients who share our quest for the best socially, environmentally and economically sustainable architecture. This has resulted in a series of award winning buildings.
