UHA is a studio for urban design, architecture and interior design. The studio is involved in a wide range of projects varying in both context, function and scale. One of their guiding principles is the constant pursuit of improvement in the quality of our built environment through an energetic, sustainable and optimistic approach to design. This is facilitated by a focus on specific elements such as natural light, simplicity and elegance which accentuate and characterise their designs. Also critical is the architectural and programmatic interplay of spaces and the sequences in which they are experienced. Aesthetic yet functionalist fervour and innovation, combined with disciplined technical expertise, drive all of their work from product design and interiors to architecture and urban design.
