Connect April 2021

Images

KA Connect is a quarterly snapshot of our practice which includes recently completed projects, to ideas emerging from the studio, to critical issues on the built environment that concern us.

In this second issue, we are showcasing two large affordable housing projects. Both projects started with developing a master plan which was then developed to urban design guidelines and finally to built architecture. Both projects demonstrate our ability to work on large scale housing and translate a big vision to concrete built form. Also included in this issue are two projects which are in the process of design development and showcase the diversity of our portfolio.

There is also a small essay on our insights and approach towards sustainability, demonstrated through design principles that we apply to a variety of projects. In this toughest of tough years we would sincerely like to thank our clients, consultants and our dedicated team who have been extremely supportive both professionally and personally to tackle the challenges head on. We stand here at the beginning of a new financial year, more resilient than before, reinvented and reconstructed for a changed world with greater energy and confidence.

We would appreciate any feedback and words of encouragement as we move forward on this journey. Hope you enjoy this issue.
