Modern Design

Modern design is extremely sensitive to the site, the environment and the human impact and scale. 
Modernism has it roots in California USA approximately beginning about 100 years ago with the innovative architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright and Rudolph Schindler. 
The brand of modernism that we see in Australia, blurs the boundaries of the indoors and outdoors.
