Everyone knows by now that open plan offices are bad news, and for good reason!

Designing for projects means starting from scratch and giving so much more than defined in the brief: It’s Time for Stilts™, part 2… RAW TUKS Stilts Future Africa Institute

It’s been more than a year since we introduced you to how Raw applies design supply services to large projects, so we thought it’s time we give you a refresher of what’s been unfolding at the University Pretoria/Earthworld Architects’ Future Africa Institute project and more specifically our Stilts system.

Peter Matthews from MAAA approached us at Raw Studios to develop a system for a new project also headed by the University of Pretoria […]
