Creative architecture balances the priority of function and the ambition of delight. Historic typologies and precedent show that evolution and innovation are closely related processes. Levitate interprets this as inventive common sense, and employs a design process based on a consistent set of principles that bring coherence and continuity to its work.

As relatively few projects genuinely warrant a return to first principles, however, when opportunities to invent new solutions do emerge, we rise to the challenge; be that through the invention of a hybrid book and stair case that hangs from the rafters like a sedan chair; a system of solar shades that mimic the canopy of a tree; or ideas for homes of the future that address specific issues to do with affordability and climate change.
