Our Ethos

 

A WELL-MADE LIFE

We believe that we can all create, for ourselves, using the resources that we have available to us, the circumstances in which we can best thrive.

A well-made life is a life strongly (deliberately), or skilfully, constructed with self-understanding, acceptance, intention and meaning. 

Strength and skill comes through repetition and practice, and the more time we give to thinking about what a fulfilled life means to us, and the more time we devote to seeking fulfilment, the more likely we are to be fulfilled. 

“Very little is needed to make a happy life; it is all within yourself in your way of thinking.” Marcus Aurelius

The spaces that we craft for ourselves can play an important role in the way that we experience our lives. They nurture, shield and uplift us. At once, they are the vessels of the past, present and future. They support us alone and connect us to others.

Our surroundings can deeply affect how we experience emotions and sensations, how we feel and how we behave. Built environments can be designed to bring about a particular response/ set of responses. Every project is an opportunity to build a deeper sense of fulfilment.
