... That reducing the impact that buildings have on the environment is critical to living in balance with nature.
... That there is a worthy tradition of New Zealand Building and Architecture we can respect, utilise and build on into the future.
... That our clients give us some of our best ideas. We want your participation in the process because we know the results will be better.
... That small things matter. The integrity of a project is judged by it's detail.
