About Us

Our Approach

We approach each project in an independent and customised manner, applying the most relevant combination of the following:

Complexity and Systems Theory

An emphasis on connectivity and interaction, leading to the design of smarter, more enduring solutions

Strengths based approaches

Identifying what works well and how to achieve this good practice more often.

Participatory engagement

Actively involving all stakeholders to find solutions that are based on collective wisdom and ownership.


Four principles provide a foundation for how we approach our work: balance, early feedback, high care factor, and diversity and dissent.
