Welcome. There may be other ways of describing our work, but 'loving precision' is quite fair. In our first realised project (Henderson Waves 2008), the doubly-curved parts of the 1,500m2 deck formed a tapestry of 5000 hardwood boards, all tapered to measure. Using the original design equations, we issued a precise description of the surface and provided coordinates for the manufacturer’s shop drawings.

The 'loving precision' is not limited to architecture. While developing a masterplan for a rugged remote site in Greece (left), we surveyed the terrain using an original approach to curvature as 'fragmented flatness'. With half-a-million points, this virtual model registers every sinew of the 116ha site to the nearest meter. (Astypalaia Master Plan, Greece since 2010).

Mostly we like to make things. The more unusual, the better - but conceptual tours-de-force is never an end in itself. Most of our time is spent on pre-rationalising non-standard material solutions . We do not pass vague design ideas on to engineers, fabricators, or quantity surveyors. We are involved in the process of making from the very beginning - the bottleneck of materiality as an opportunity for collaboration. (Clematis Montana Legendre 2015). Photo IJP.
