Collaboration, sustainability and an artistic sensibility are the threads that run through every project we undertake. Underpinning it all is a deep commitment to people-centred design. We enjoy working with families, individuals and businesses that are focussed on an inspiring and practical design solution, keen to tread lightly on the earth and create something lasting and sustainable.
These are values we live every day. Darryl has a deep commitment to a wholefood plant-based organic diet whilst Mei Ling maintains an organic vegetable garden to meet the family’s needs. Individually and as a team, we combine a passion for the arts with a commitment to producing soundly based architecture that adds to the quality of life.
