We value design as a collaborative process where experience, expertise and dialogue with clients, consultants, contractors and end-users develop the most appropriate solutions.

Understanding design primarily as a people-focused endeavour, our mission is to produce value, quality, and design excellence.

The company has offices in the main South African cities, and has expanded into Africa, with offices in Nigeria, Mozambique and Mauritius. This provides valuable experience and access across the continent.
