Research and understanding

Creativity springs from within like a fresh, clear, mountain spring welling-up from the very earth. It is precious yet we possess it in abundance. But for creativity it to be useful, it must be channelled and controlled.

It is the research and understanding of our clients needs, within the context of site, culture, and history that shapes and directs the channels through which our creativity flows.

If the creativity reaches fertile ground, lush and beautiful gardens will grow. Those gardens, in the form of buildings, interiors, and furniture, will become the delight of our clients and all who walk and rest with them.

Where presented with fertile ground, we see our task as to irrigate it, and tend what grows until it is mature and productive.

In this sense, we are simple gardeners trying to grow what our clients desire.
