Based on the principle motivations held by Founding Director Alan Jordan at the practice’s inception in 2006 arkLAB have come to embody and value several core principles which remain central to our work.
Creative – using the creative process of our design charrettes and genuine team collaboration to maximise design innovation
Contributing – where the services we provide make a difference to clients, users and the community and in the context of mentoring others within our team and the profession.
Sustainable – with an emphasis on a safe and healthy working environment, managed stress and moderate working hours to encourage a healthy work life
Process-focussed – to enable the provision of architectural services that are satisfying for clients, energising for the team and commercially responsible
