An architectural studio necessarily exists beyond its own boundaries, to have real impact it has to engage with the culture at large. At a key moment in the evolution of our large-scale projects, the team hops on a bus and goes on a site tour – this allows them to see in reality what they have all been working on in theory back inside our Renny street, Paddington HQ.
We’re an extremely process-driven practice, and these outings are not only experientially important to our technical R&D process, but also underscore the very social nature of the team’s collaborative work dynamic. This Whale Beach house is a mammoth structure, and a project of which we are naturally very proud. To see the whole team up there, pacing it out, handling the materials, checking the perspective… that is an aspect of our practice that i simply would not do without.
