Celebrating over 25 years, eiw have created a culture whereby the knowledge and minds of its staff and clients are continually enriched with powerful and innovative thinking.

We provide architectural, interior design and masterplanning services in a way that engages, encourages and inspires our clients. At the heart of our philosophy is recognition that we become part of a planning and design team, working with people in the context of respect and innovation.

We call it Building Ideas.

Our strong studio culture tackles problems together, develops ideas and proposes sustainable solutions.

The Building Ideas philosophy – a human centred approach that engages the users, embraces authentic listening, builds collaborative processes and propels us towards exemplary solutions.

All members of the eiw studio pursue professional development centred around three core competencies, cultivating a culture based on creativity, quality and enrichment.

Our Building Ideas core competencies embrace -

  • Building a culture of learning
