WHY DESIGN STRATEGY / ARCHITECTURE

 

What we bring to the table is a holistic outlook on what needs to be done, and why. We identify the forces that impact a project and by collaboratively working with clients, communities and end users create buildings that work well on every level, inside and out. 

 

We combine our design expertise with capabilities in strategy and research and regularly collaborate with experts from complementary fields.

 

We work across architecture, interior design and urban design – a unique multidisciplinary mix that unlocks the social, economic and cultural value of projects. 

Our ideas are grounded in understanding context, clients brief and user experience so that the buildings are meaningful and make positive contributions to its public realm. As urban designers, we know how to bring forward the experiential attributes that make a place memorable and attractive.

PRINCIPAL

ANDRES LOPEZ

I am a registered Architect and Urban Designer with over 15 years of experience in Australia and overseas. For the majority of my career, I have worked as a Design Architect within leading National and Multi-National Architectural firms including Woods Bagot, Hassell and RotheLowman. Primarily my roles have been front end focused, however, my experience spans all stages of projects, from initial feasibility and concept design, through to construction.

To me there is no satisfaction in creating something beautiful that is empty, I believe that memorable buildings and places respect their context and are created through a story and well-considered detail. As a Design Architect, I strive to listen and lead with ideas to motivate and inspire the team to deliver successful design outcomes for our clients.

 

I am passionate about urban regeneration projects with an integrated vision that creates sustainable and connected urban environments.
