Our philosophy

Arkhefield Philosophy

We approach each project as an opportunity to meld common good with commercial reality. We strive to create new ways to respond to constrained briefs and realise complex projects.

We promote the design and delivery of the built environment as a collaborative effort. This requires active listening, lateral thinking, commercial acumen and an appreciation of the cultural setting for successful projects of long-term value.

We are motivated by what is best for the project and client, and we are skilled enough to make this what is best for architecture. We bring ideas to the table that have value. We bring them into practice and make them part of the project and client culture.

OUR IDEALS

APPROACH over AESTHETIC
There is no predetermined style or model—we take a fresh approach with every project.

DIVERSITY is part of our strength + success
We recognise each issue as unique; we adapt to multiple sectors and applications.

“THE EGG” or the big idea
The idea behind the design solution provides order and strength beyond merely responding to the brief.

HONEST + RAW design language
Every element is part of an integrated whole and contributes to the bigger picture.

AUTHENTIC MATERIAL selection enhances the form
An authentic approach that suits the local climate, landscape and culture.

BALANCE + DIALOGUE expressed in design
Space versus form; object versus place.

HOLISTIC design approach
All brief and site parameters are addressed—we tick all the boxes and aim for the best solution.
