Radiant City adheres to a guiding
set of principles that unifies and
integrates our work.
THESE COMPRISE THE CONCEPT, PROCESS AND FORM TRILOGY
Every project has a central set of objectives, whether strategic, aesthetic or conceptual- the parti that orients the work. The concept may comfort, or curvature, or to define a market, or to surprise. The concept remains flexible and broad. At all stages of the process, with every decision, we ask ourselves.
“Does this decision or design or colour or idea reference the Concept?”
Refers to the technical steps required to achieve the project. They can involve permitting, documentation, research, negotiation, and innovation. We bring a high level of technical expertise to every project, and where we need help, we seek expertise, or research or invent it ourselves as required.
Without a vision of form in the real world, we are not practicing Architecture. We bring a commitment to evolve and expressive aesthetic contribution to the project. We look to the language of Architecture – massing, shape, materiality, texture – as a palette for the final form. And we seek to avoid formula – every project is an invention responding to a unique relevant context
