For 28 years, our wide range of award-winnng projects have been driven by collaborative solutions that inspire our clients and contribute to the wellbeing of the communities and environments we work in.

What We Do

S2 practices architecture that is inspiring, sustainable and thoughtful. We are passionate about creating spaces with character and functionality that reinforce a community’s identity and encourage activity and public engagement.

We want our work to speak to everyone involved - clients, consultants, suppliers, our communities, and the various users of the space - we come together to contribute our collective passions and ideas to shape our world.

What We Believe

Our Values

Smarter together.

Our collaborative approach is driven by more than a desire for coordination and efficiency. The way we approach projects comes from a belief that shared ideas, collective knowledge, and combined experience benefits the project goals and vision.

Stay grounded.

We believe that success can only be achieved when thoughtfully grounded in the wellbeing of the people we work with, the environment, and our communities.

Nurture our world.

Sustainability comes from the relationship we have with the world around us. How we live, what we choose to create, and the resources we utilize are guided by a sense of stewardship that nurtures a balance between us and the natural world.

Imagine more.

We create a team environment where everyone can freely express new ideas, innovative concepts are nurtured, and creativity flows.

We walk together.

Diversity and inclusivity have a tangible value that gives us insight and perspective for stronger and more creative solutions.

Relationships matter.

The foundation for wellbeing and success is building relationships that are enduring, have strength, and are meaningful.
