ASSEMBLY TEAM

Our studio comprises a diverse and talented group of architects, designers and technicians. Of our 8 architectural staff, we have a 50/50 gender balance. 100% of the team are snow sports enthusiasts with five on snowboards and three on skis. We also have a champion rower, several runners and a couple of keen gardeners.

From time to time we seek out new talent to join us.
