e+i Philosophy | choreographing space

At e+i we believe that collaboration and interdisciplinary exchange are a vital component of the design process. We work closely with clients as collaborators, incorporating expertise from various disciplines in order to find unique and environmental solutions for any design problem. Each project demands a unique approach and is considered from a multi-faceted perspective, balancing social and environmental parameters, aesthetics, innovation and the realities of budget and fabrication.

We are particularly interested in projects that engage the public, that are meaningful for the communities they serve, and that bring people together providing awareness to the importance the constructed environment holds on our well-being as a human species, living within natural environments that support and sustain us.

Informed by our background in movement related practices we approach architecture as an interdisciplinary practice that emerges from the exploration of the performance of matter and bodies in space. For us, architecture is a material manifestation of choreographed space. In other words, we seek to propose solutions that engage all users, is performative, and takes into account change in time and use.
