ARCHITECTURE FOR HUMAN WELLBEING
THE PLACES WE INHABIT HAVE
POWER TO ENRICH OUR LIVES
We need new approaches and solutions to respond to evolving patterns of life in the 21st century; to develop new ways that are fit for the challenges, and possibilities, of today.
Our mission is to put human wellbeing at the heart of how our surroundings are made. We are passionate about reframing the way our built environments are created, and were founded with the ambition to catalyse change in industry.
Driven by our values of optimism, empathy and innovation, we work with like-minded organisations to create solutions and projects that are truly responsive to people’s needs and emotions.
We see design as a tool to catalyse change and at best, has the potential enhance humanity by addressing today's pressing issues.
TO DO THIS, WE TAKE A DIFFERENT STARTING POINT;
by focusing on the psychological, social and emotional impact of places we translate people's needs into joyful, beautiful, soulful spaces.
We believe in design that responds to our inner workings as human beings.
FROM OUR WORK & RESEARCH, WE BELIEVE THAT:
Places have the power make us feel alive, spark sociability and lift the spirits. We all need more places that simply feel good to be in, that people love and feel connected to.
Architecture should be full of soul, and create places that can touch the spirit in ways we can’t always put our finger on
The design of places can better connect us to ourselves, to those around us and to our surroundings.
By embedding human needs into the design process, we believe a more intimate approach can be brought to large scale development - to make change that matters for the many, not only the few.
