Case Studies

Combining architectural best practice with
complementary thinking about our social milieu,
MGS reframes the tensions in the brief
as opportunities.

Our clients benefit from optimistic
approaches to real world solutions that are
commercially successful, resilient and enabling. 


To us, brilliance lies in the power of
combinations others often fail to reconcile.

In our world, the competing demands of
living well yet sustainably are coupled with
the desire for individual expression, the need
for community and a longing to be delighted
and intrigued.

MGS can rightfully claim to be the practice
that embraces this tension,
finding opportunity in the dichotomies
others dismiss.


We offer an expanded idea of architecture
and design, drawing on our strengths in advocacy,
artistry, business acumen, research, policy
development and community engagement.

Our work is guided by insight into the
community we service and is allied to a deep
sense of commerciality.
