Practice Ideology

ZEROGREY is a multidisciplinary design practice specialising in architecture, landscape and interior design. Our practice is an amalgamation of diverse talents that strive to encapsulate both cultural and climatic contexts to produce solutions that not only enhance the visual aspects but elevate the intangible experiences of a built environment. We are driven by empathy – we are driven by the ethos that in the minutest of details lies the answer to the bigger questions – we are driven by intuition and instinct – we are driven by the thirst to test the limits.
