The Directors’ integral working knowledge of Rudolf Steiner philosophy and arts translates into a design sensibility that supports living processes within each of us and Nature.
We value the imaginative vs the abstract, the sensual vs minimalism, engagement vs fragmentation.
Masterplans, whether for schools or eco villages in semi-rural zones or multi-lot commercial properties on urban CBD sites, aim to optimise the use of a site.
Commercial projects often begin with architectural Feasibility Studies that consider design opportunities in response to planning controls, permissible floor area, site context and financial parameters such as cost to construct vs rental yield and disruption to business costs.
