Our process encourages
connection and co-creativity


We immerse ourselves into understanding your organisation and community through empowering peoples’ voice and authentic listening. This phase can be tailored to include surveys, site audits, focus groups and ‘Building Ideas’ workshops. It is about digging deeper to build ownership based on a human-centric approach and developing a strong sense of place.

Vientiane International School, Laos

Drawing on the regional context and cultural imperatives, we designed
learning and community facilities that enhance the curriculum initiatives.


As we synthesise the information and ideas collected through the immersion process, we begin to make connections, understand diversity, explore ideas and establish design principles to feedback, articulating the design brief.

Vientiane International School, Laos

Understanding the VIS values and articulating these through the built form, 
creates learning environments that matter and become part of the story of VIS.


As we develop ideas and offer up ‘what ifs?’, we seek to engage and communicate through the lens of your organisation and community, together discovering aspirational design solutions that don’t just respond to the design brief, but build opportunities to value add to the built and natural environment in sustainable ways.

The building seamlessly merges our heritage and tradition, providing the opportunity for meaningful reflection, and a foundation for which future lonians can continue to excel. The intention of the facility was to inspire a desire for lifelong learning to promoting a sense of belonging, collaboration, creativity and innovation. The building has provided both large scale and intimate spaces which allows students and staff to engage in conversation, investigation and creation.

All programmed milestones were met in a timely manner, regular site meetings were held to keep us informed of any delays. There was a very good relationship between EIW and the builders, which ensured that resource management was not an issue on the project.
