Connect. Unite and empower a new generation of designers using interdisciplinary thinking to improve the built environment
A systematic problem has shaped the built environment we all partake in. Designers and architects solely see their responsibility as creating designs, without understanding them. By ending the design process at the delivery of a set of drawings, designers miss the most crucial part of a building: its occupancy.
Our design framework reverses the paradigm for traditional design practice. Instead of starting with design ideation, we start by defining outcomes through a calibration meeting with our client. Once we understand the goal outcomes, we utilize a diverse portfolio of disciplines to identify possible paths to achieve desired outcomes. This evidence-based and outcome-driven research sets the foundation for our design.
