Outstanding and enduring buildings are formed through a creative process which exploits the opportunities presented, and searches for those inherent and subtle characteristics which define both unique and timeless quality. We challenge ourselves and our clients to define architecture with light which will enhance the community and reinterpret their context and purpose. With light we create original works that are beautiful and functional, simultaneously complex and simple. We are fascinated by how light can be manipulated to capture the unique qualities of a particular form, place, and purpose. We believe light is a powerful tool which communicates the identity of place and shapes our perception of this environment.
