We believe strongly in the importance of quality in the built environment. As a young studio we see ourselves as a part of a new generation of creative pragmatists that are interested in how design can be used to create spaces that are both sustainable and enduring.
Our clients are committed to design quality and innovation and we work hard to develop strong and long lasting collaborative relationships. We use every project as an opportunity to experiment with new ideas and materials to generate unique designs that are specific to people that live in them.
We specialise in small scale projects, from furniture through to boutique developments, quality over quantity and the careful resolution of a building through a close understanding of material craft.

Laura Martires was born in the south of Portugal, growing in a small seaside town before moving to Lisbon and then Tokyo to complete a degree in Architecture and Urban Design. The gradual exposure to denser urban environments has enhanced her passion for cities and the ways people inhabit them. An aesthete by nature she aims to be involved in the design of elegant spaces that stand the test of time. Laura has been involved in teaching at RMIT, Monash and Melbourne Universities and has an ongoing commitment to architectural research.
