Light and Shade in Architecture

Environment is Key

Nature derives light and shade. We look at the way buildings earn the light, build shade, maintain depth and richness and how it fits into the natural environment. Space and material are the mediums used to create light and shade. We understand the value of creating shade to buffer harsh environmental realities and make a space habitable.

We value light-filled spaces and strive to create them, throughout. And we strike a balance between openness and discretion—Let in light, while also keeping your domain private.
