The best and the completely new are not always one and the same. Looked at through fresh eyes and new perspectives, the built assets you already have can also be the very ones you most need to take you forward. Because of our skills and insights, that’s precisely the role we can fulfill. Enhancement of existing assets is one of our favorite design challenges. And it has inspired some of our most satisfying work.
Making The Best Of It Can Be The Best Option
As designers, we believe that we should only ever pursue paths for our clients that we would be happy to follow ourselves. That’s why when it came to constructing our own workplace, we took our own advice. We transformed a few severely run-down buildings into a whole new space. One that we find inspirational precisely because it has its roots in the ideal of making the best of what is already there.
The lessons we took from this project, literally so close to home, provide the learning we share with our clients. We know that optimization – the very best reinterpretation and reuse of what already exists – does not have to be a compromise. Optimization can give inspiration to some of the finest built environments and some of the most impressive and effective work places. Enhancement can save valuable architectural heritage from needless destruction. It can breathe new life, not just into the fabric of a building but into the fabric of the community as well. And it can produce spaces that challenge, intrigue, involve, and reward every bit as much as any brand new building.
Time For A Fresh Pair Of Eyes?
If you have elements of your built environment that you sense can be put to better use – or if you have a requirement to create new accommodation but lack the space, the context, or the opportunities to start from the ground up – we can look carefully at the assets you have in place today. We can advise on how, creatively and practically, you can optimize them for tomorrow. To discover if you already have today the makings of what you aspire to for tomorrow, talk to us.
