At Hexagon Studio Architects, we like to think that what we are making is a piece of a larger puzzle that could fit no other way. This is how nature works: following purposeful patterns purely and simply, efficiently and effectively. We feel that it is through this simple straightforward approach - where every decision is based on something fundamental, and every resolution is an answer to a problem - that thoughtful, timeless design is achieved.
For us, context provides the raw material for inspiration: a veritable pool of potential. Recognizing that the constituent parts of a project's conceptual foundations lie in both the physical (such as climate or local vernacular) as well as the intellectual (such as the various collaborators' experiences and backgrounds) provides us with an endless source of generators for contextually driven and appropriate design.
Collaboration is the vehicle that transforms all this wonderful raw material into something rich and novel. A single-minded design process is inherently limiting and, frankly, boring. We see all interaction in the design process as collaboration and judge the most successful collaborations by the appropriateness and novelty of the end product.
