studio

b. 1986, HK.

Our pro­jects em­brace and trans­late a brief into spaces that en­hance the hu­man ex­pe­ri­ence and have the po­ten­tial to change and grow with time.  We use sim­ple forms and ba­sic nar­ra­tives to cre­ate a design that res­onate sim­ply and pro­foundly with place and its in­hab­i­tants.  Each el­e­ment of a pro­ject is care­fully con­sid­ered and in­te­grated into a co­her­ent whole through close col­lab­o­ra­tion with skilled con­sul­tants and trades­peo­ple.

Established in 2013, the stu­dio has offices in Mel­bourne and Lugano and works on pro­jects in both Aus­tralia and Switzer­land.
