Hundredhands was founded in November, 2003. We currently have ten architects and are working on a mix of urban design, architectural and interior design projects.


The studio’s approach is grounded in the search for contextually appropriate solutions. Special emphasis is given to the response to climate, the existing scale and character of the context, appropriate use of materials and construction techniques, and the development of the project aesthetic as a result of these specific conditions.


We believe that this recognition of what exists leads to a more sensitive speculation of what can be. The work seeks to identify appropriate metaphors for the particular exigencies of a project and our larger identity as a people - a search for 'the beautiful idea'.
