The practice of design within the Asian region is continuing to evolve to address our refined awareness of the environment as well as our expectations arising from the achievement of a greater level of affluence and a higher standard of living.
This evolution has brought to the region many of the current trends in sophisticated lifestyles and design, and these trends has seen the creation of some of the most dynamic urban and resort environments in the world today.
This fast paced development is not without repercussions, with mounting pressure on the urban and natural environments, and communities across the region are increasingly becoming less liveable, congested, costly and unsustainable. There is mounting pressure to develop our urban areas, extending our cities outwards and putting pressure on rural areas and some of our most scenic landscapes.
Mitigating this impact and creating successful transitions between the development and its natural context is becoming an increasingly important role for the designer. Maintaining a substantial development program requires both the recognition and integration of a sites natural attributes and features, as well as the acceptance and mitigation of it is existing constraints.
Our designers are respectful of the ‘place’ and provide site-specific solutions. As we continue our journey in further exploring the potential of the landscape, and its integration with the built form, we rely upon the guides of contextual compatibility, architectural continuity, and functional appropriateness to ensure a unique and lasting expression for each of design commissions.
Our objective is that our designs will stand the “test of time”.
