The presentation of two different views simultaneously A practice born from varied design backgrounds and a vision for a studio that provides not only a professional service but bespoke architectural solutions. Driven by a belief in the art of architecture as a global resource, and equally our place within it. We are a studio that promotes collaboration across the board, to achieve a high degree of support for the design, encouraging new insights that can lead to design innovation. Paring back the brief to see past the conspicuous, we seek to provide inspirational spaces and a connection to nature and the individual. From the large scale to the small, for public or for private, we are unassuming by nature, acknowledging the non-linearity of the process.With an open mind and without preconceptions, we approach each project as an opportunity for architecture as a discourse. Backed by critical thinking and a design methodology that eliminates compromise and crystallizes the brief, no matter how challenging. Driven by curiosity and exploration, yet bearing in mind budgetary constraints, we work with the client to achieve crafted, considered and provocative results.

Internally the need was to create another world, a sensory delight. Using nearly 300 PTFE plastic spheres threaded onto tensioned cables mounted around the perimeter provides a separation between customer and pedestrian whilst encouraging views into the store and generating intrigue.The ‘bubbles’ celebrate the materiality synonymous with the product. The bubbles themselves providing the display for the shoes, a bespoke fitting utilising a suction cap, allows for shoes to be mounted anywhere within the display.The rear wall of the store acts as a giant billboard, a canvas for the signature graphics and artwork produced for each new designer range, ensuring views of the store do not dwell only on the perimeter.
