The office produces modern, sustainable, serene and highly crafted buildings underpinned by the traditions and cultural markers that have defined the practice of architecture for centuries.
Architecture acts as a medium between the environment, culture and people. Like people, buildings inhabit a place and so buildings should engage with the essence of that place and respect the natural order. To achieve this, the practice works with a detailed understanding of the natural and built environment, of landscape, of people and of the history of place.
Important in the the design process is a respectful acknowledgement of climate change issues, driving passive solar thermal performance measures, careful building siting and orientation, sustainability through use of recycled materials, use of natural materials expressed in their raw form and a minimisation or elimination of superfluous expensive automation.
Architecture is about finding creative and innovative solutions that simultaneously and elegantly resolve multiple design challenges presented by a client's requirements and the constraints and opportunities of each project. Architects work to discover the true value and qualities unique to each project.
The design process is allowed to take place in a timeframe specific to the needs of each project and client.
Since the practice’s inception in 2009, Adrian has produced a range of unique buildings for clients of diverse backgrounds and needs. He has 14 years prior experience in a range of architectural firms in Sydney, London and Melbourne, including three years with the late and renowned Sydney modernist architect Neville Gruzman AM.
