ATDesignOffice holds a belief that the quality of our surroundings has a direct influence on the quality of our lives. We acknowledge that design is generated by the needs of people – both material and spiritual – and a concern for the physical context and the culture, climate and ambience of place. Equally, excellence of design and its successful execution are central to our approach.
The current atmosphere is placing nature at the heart of everyday life and erasing the borders between indoors and outdoors is one of our focuses. We believe that a strong sustainability focus is vital in ensuring the longevity of our projects. A cross-pollination is combining the urban, the natural and the technological requirements for design and creates a multi-faceted, multi-dimensional project outcome. In a time of extensive urbanization of the planet, the city and nature are being reconciled in order to soften urban manners.
For too long we have been sprawling across the natural landscape without thought of the degradation it may cause to natural habitats for flora and fauna. We believe that by reducing our urban footprint and working with the current restriction of the built environment, we may re-build and re-generate those outer environments which are so vital for our planets survival. We believe this cohabitation is producing new dimensions of design, creating opportunity for detailed site responsive outcomes that respond to the mediate environment yet positively affect the surrounding. This holistic approach is augmented by a strong commitment to the clients we serve, and also to the public domain and the many users involved.
