in practice

'Tim's photograph captures the magical quality of light, which, with contextual response, is one of the key ingredients of our work. In a small way the design of our offices attempts to encapsulate the qualities of humanity and materiality, balancing careful and honest detailing with the creation of a place that is both stimulating and calming. Much of the development of our work is carried out in informal crits. In this case we are reviewing options for the form of a lecture theatre for the University of Essex. What makes our daily routine so enjoyable is the variety of our projects. We may be detailing the door handle for a private house, discussing the structural solution for a bridge, choosing the shape of trees or, for a masterplan, studying the threedimensional realm between buildings. These varied projects attempt to understand the contrariness of the human condition, which we have challenged in our studio design.'
