demaine about / profile


The philosophy of Demaine Partnership centres on technical and design excellence. Technical priorities include process management from briefing to final handover and beyond. We place particular emphasis on meeting all the budget and schedule objectives of our projects, while achieving architectural excellence. Our directors, together with a team of architects, are involved in the supervision and design of each project from the initial stages of planning through construction and post-construction. We believe that good design emerges from accurately meeting our clients requirements. We achieve this through intensive dialogue, which continues throughout the building design and implementation process. However we add further value to this process through independent research. We look for better solutions, and a number of patent applications for building technologies are testament to this commitment. We also engage in debate in seeking new solutions to both emerging and existing building programs. The Ideas section of this website presents some of those concepts for consideration and, we hope, dialogue. Demaine Partnership’s design solutions are driven by the specifics of the brief, not a predetermined design style. We seek to create structures that fit with their environment, are functional, carefully crafted and aesthetically pleasing.
