Founded in 1972 and re-established in 2012, our practice brings together the entrepreneurship of Rock Townsend’s founding partners with the enterprising attitude of a new generation of designers.
Our studio is a place of craft, rigour and exploration. Young architects are given early responsibility, acting as apprentices to a connected way of thinking. The focus is on collective effort, an ethos of collaboration and building relationships.
We strongly believe that architects are uniquely placed to enrich the process of making buildings and places, applying imagination and critical thinking to resolve practical problems into fitting solutions. Our intent is to make apt buildings and active places.
The resulting work has spirit and endures – not because of architectural authorship, but because it carries the signature of the users, clients and communities to whom it belongs.
