Architecture is materialized between men and nature, and at once de-materialized by time, place, and use. Through continuous honing of our minds and craft, we pursue good design and sincere architecture.
Time, or temporality is what gives architecture its true life and spirit. Helped by the ageing and weathering effects of time, the momentary flashing of light and shadow, stirring movement of wind and water, meaning of architecture goes beyond visual spectacle and formal articulation.
Place, or locality where architecture exists, creates the specific conditions for the work to be rooted contextually and gives its cultural meaning, resulting in a work that is both about the place and re-defines the place at the same time.
Use, or usage of an architectural space, reflects on one end the intrinsic needs and desires of the inhabitant, and on the other end the ontological values of architecture. Architecture’s raison d’être and condition for beauty exist within the notion of “use” that can be forever mutable and yet, meaningfully consistent.
We define “use” not by pre-conceived functions, but by what we actually do in a particular time and place, with a multitude of actions: Inspire ｜ Learn ｜ Build ｜ Connect ｜ Restore
to Inspire, is to reveal beauty, spirituality, power and wisdom of Man, Nature, and the Divine
to Learn, is to extend beyond the known world, and to explore into the unknown universe.
to Build, is to reflect the human nature of producing both the tangibles and the intangibles, while creating new potentials and real values.
to Connect, is to bring together communities and ideas, goods and services, and to bring them to different places
to Restore, is to anchor in time and space, to find refuge for body and mind, to rest, to repair, to replenish both matter and energy, and to return to the origin of intent.
