Polychromy is the art of using multiple colours in architecture, sculpture and painting

At work, at play

Model making, custom colour mixing, sample testing, hand drawing and CAD are all essential working methods. To understand the materiality of colour, and the effects of light and scale on colour, requires physical testing and on-site experimentation.

Colours that are chosen with intelligence and passion produce joy, create serene or joyous atmospheres and enhance the three-dimensional effect of a room.
