Here's the Stutchbury and Pape site from Oz courtesy of that Architectural Web Living Treasure, Eric Moorhouse.

S & P does architecture and landscape and the opening page is a really crap charcoal sketch of either big surf waves or a mountain range. But, and this is a big but, there are only three items to click: 'recent projects', 'our team' and 'contact'.

They could have eliminated 'contact' by featuring the address stuff on each page and made it even simpler. We all know that staff mugshots are there to keep the help feeling valued. It can be a double-edged sword. This lot look cheerful and dedicated enough but I've seen some staff photos on websites which could only deter potential clients - permanently.

Still, click on 'recent projects' and there are currently 23 sketches of built projects on two pages. Click on any of them and up come (normally) five photographs which you can cycle through. I couldn't see any text. But these buildings, mostly inventively designed private houses in sensational settings, don't really need explanation. You can't say that of many architectural practices. And there's not a trace of an office 'philosophy'.

Goodonyer mates.
