de-spec is an award winning internationally recognized multi disciplinary practice with a focus on the relation of space and it’s occupant, developing spatial typologies for an architecture that is experienced inside and out. The name de-spec itself is a derivative of de-speculative. Speculative programming, while reaching for the ideal of “universal space” has too often has resulted in a generic solution. The act of de-speculating is applied to most projects as a form of ‘de- construction’ of site and program in search of content and experience. Design is viewed beyond a marketing tool rather it strives to organize company’s identity and define its built environment which serves to refine the ‘brand experience’ as a concept. Regardless of scale, all projects are subject to the same investigations of site and context, program analysis and (re)-interpretation and consistent with use of eco-friendly materials and attitudes. De-spec believes that the act of design is an inclusive process that invites the client, developer and consultants to work together in developing the ideal solution. This collaboration seeks to engage all parties in a relevant discourse, resulting in the most satisfying solution to the project.
