This office incorporates a philosophy that requires consequential thinking— a four dimensional simultaneous design process which brings into happy marriage considerations of social use, aesthetics, environment and technology. Projects are in such places as France, Austria, Italy, Asia, Hong Kong, America and Mexico and locally in Victoria, NSW, WA, ACT and Queensland. The size and building types range from small houses to substantial high rise commercial and residential. Other typical examples include Embassies, group housing olympic pools, sporting facilities, colleges, welfare and cultural centres, industrial facilities, hotels, council facilities and energy plants.

Located on the western edge of the Darling Harbour entertainment and conference precinct, this swimming pool complex containing an 8 lane 50 m pool, therapy pool, associated spaces and car parking has been designed for the City of Sydney.
The Rocks, Sydney, 2003
To plan a tall building on a constricted area meant that the footprint was allowed by the authorities to oversail the existing Church Hall without penetrating it with supports. This necessitated parts of the tower structure to be supported on cantilevered deep beams over setback steel columns. It is expected that apartments with dramatic (even if partially limited) views toward the harbour, have adequate size balconies. These were shaped so as to allow adequate wide space for outdoor eating with tables and chairs.
