technology. The computer is deeply embedded into each of our projects development. It allows form finding, complex space to materialize and lets us visualize precisely how these spaces interact with each other and the use of specific materials for each project. This technique then allows us to permanently follow the ideas as they evolve; we can test and validate them before its one to one construction. There is advanced computer skills in the following programs: arcihCAD: for the production of high quality construction drawings and BIM modeling. Artlantis Studio, Final cut, Photoshop, InDesign and Illustrator: to develop presentational 3d illustrations, renderings and animations. A high competency in Mircosoft Office.

studio. We at ba+d are a creatively led multidisciplinary design studio relocated just metres from the raw foreshore of South New Brighton, Christchurch. A small but not limited architecture and design practice that looks at opening the boundaries of conventional practice by a fresh and exploratory approach to design. ba+d treats each project as a fresh challenge, offering unique possibilities and prides itself in experimentation, creativity, flexibility, spontaneity and general face slapping ability - all within the given constraints to achieve something exceptional. All of ba+d designs are conceptually driven, outside the box and sustainability conscious. ba+d’s niche is not a specific style or look but an attitude that is expressed by having ideas and creating unique solutions for differing briefs; styles and singular themes are avoided, we believe in ideas rather than building type, whether the project be a house in the dunes, an office in a concrete pipe or a theoretical tower for the cathedral of Antwerp.
