Who we are
We are a design consultancy specialising in creating thriving work environments that support people’s positive work experience, high performance, and the success of the organisation.
What we do
We create work environments that are aligned with the vision and culture of the organisation, support performance and wellbeing, and ultimately contribute to business success.
Our design model integrates the results of scientific research with the building users’ goals, culture and work style, ensuring that the workspace supports multiple objectives set by our clients.
Why we are here
We believe that our surroundings can support us to get in touch with our innate wisdom and make the most out of our opportunities, without getting overwhelmed by fast changes around us or losing sight of what’s most important.
Our design strategies are based on how the most successful, consistently high-performing businesses work, how their workplaces are designed, and how they use the space. This is the foundation of our unique design model which focuses on 7 key areas of business and workplace performance. We make sure that every single aspect of the physical space – including colours, textures, materials, lights, sounds, room layouts, furniture, technology and media – supports excellence in each of the 7 areas of your business.
