Andrew Makin is a lead architect at designworkshop : sa, an architecture practice based in Durban, South Africa. That OMM is a multiple award-winning team is hardly surprising – the firm defines itself by the quality and relevance of its conceptual design, production and final resolution. They hold as key to their success and relevance the ability to interpret a client brief and provide accurate value-adding responses. Thus the design process begins with the unravelling of the “right questions” that reveal the “right answers”. This dialogue with the client and the context, results in a final concept that is a collaboration between commissioner and architect.
