With every project, our objective is always to find ways to do more with less. Make everything as simple as possible, but not simpler. Design for the present while anticipating the future.
Co-led by Superkül’s partners, Meg Graham and Andre D’Elia, we embrace a first-principles approach and enlist only the most advanced and sustainable approaches to deliver vital and dignified design. The result: flexible, fluid, and functional spaces that are luminous and inviting.
Our diverse portfolio of work is notable for sophisticated yet simple design that responds to landscape, site, and program. On every project, regardless of magnitude, we are known for our uncommon ability to balance scrupulous attention to detail, light, and clean craftsmanship with purposeful connections to the larger built and natural contexts.
Dedicated to sustainable design, we deploy the most current material, technological, and construction solutions. We find inspiration in working with like-minded clients and collaborators to build a more resilient, responsible, and resplendent world.
A commitment to deep collaboration, strong organization, and skillful communication has earned our firm a reputation for being true team players, active listeners, and informed decision-makers in the service of well-coordinated, cost-effective, and exceptional design.
We combine the project management expertise and construction know-how one finds at larger firms with the agility and diligence unique to smaller practices. Every project — regardless of scale or budget — always receives the same treatment, the same meticulous attention to detail and coordination, and the same degree of thoughtfulness and care.
We have built a dedicated team of exceptional and agile designers who embody the firm’s founding values: rigour, respect, attentiveness, creativity, constructability, excellence. Our philosophy: Take your work seriously, but always have a sense of humour, stay humble, and listen.
