Every project starts with a question
Architecture is about creating spaces where people can feel and perform better. Our design process always starts from the inside and out, by understanding the needs of people and function of places. By involving people from the start, the engagement is greater, the outcome is better and the process runs smoother. The result is exemplary design.
White Innovation Process (WIP)
In order to optimize this broad commitment, we created WIP. This process enables us to capture ideas and creativity by engaging people with different areas of expertise. We then distil the essence of a project, arriving at a common ground. Models, imagery and graphics are important tools to communicate the vision and help to guide the way forward. White Innovation Process is our way of working and has proven to be a helpful tool in all stages of the design process.
Sustainable Integrated Design - A sustainable approach
White works sustainably. That means sustainability is an integral part of all our projects. We have created a management system that ensures sustainability targets are being implemented from planning to completion. The sustainability agenda involves everyone and is supported by our team of specialists with experience in environmental management and impact analysis and a broad knowledge of low energy solutions. We were among the first to actively work with sustainable solutions. That is why we are now leading the way in sustainable architecture.
WhiteQ stands for quality
WhiteQ is our environmental and quality management system certified in accordance to ISO 9001 and 14001. The system guarantees that our projects are delivered to the highest quality standards and facilitates the process for both our clients and ourselves. But quality is more than an accreditation. It is about taking a holistic view of how everything is run in our practice, how we support and develop our people and have sound financial systems. And to continuously review and evaluate our performance, to make it better. Even better, that is.
White as developer
Whilst the majority of our projects are commissioned, we also take on the challenge of initiating projects, managing and building them ourselves. This enables us to test new ideas and experiment with cutting-edge concepts. The lessons are disseminated and applied to other projects. But the greatest value is gaining a deeper understanding of the process as a whole; the market, building techniques and financial models. And ultimately to understand what really matters to the people we build and design for.
