We work very hard to create places that promote well-being. We believe that this is more important now than ever as the world searches for calm and fulfilment in these unpredictable times.
Whether we are creating a mixed-use project, a community, a shopping environment or public spaces, there are six key factors that we consider to create a sense of well-being.
Physical, mental and inner well-being are equally important.
A relevant sense of place
Design is a powerful tool in place-making. We believe it’s essential to draw upon physical, cultural, geographic, social and emotional factors in any context and interpret these in the creation of meaningful places. This requires research, empathy, experience and creativity.
A thriving community
Creating hope and maximizing economic success contribute to the vibrancy and sustainability of places.
Creating meaningful and rewarding experiences
Any experiences that are created must resonate with the target audience and be tailored to their true life experiences and values.
Safety & Shelter
Creating secure environments as well as the perception of safety is equally important.
Providing effective and integrated shelter from the elements is essential, whether we are working in cold or hot environments, protecting people from the elements while allowing them the full enjoyment of nature is key.
Proportion, light and nature
We believe in the power of creating pleasing proportions in relation to human scale. People are deeply affected by light and nature and we infuse every place with uplifting light and thriving natural elements.
