Ruben Reddy Architects
At Ruben Reddy Architects, we recognise the significance of how people experience space. We are of the mind that the right kind of human experience fosters a sense of place within the individual.
This in turn creates a sense of belonging and gives an individual a unique identity. They begin to see that they do not exist alone in space but are rather part of a collective. Once we acknowledge that we are part of a collective society, we start to develop notions of mutual respect among individuals as well as respect for the surrounding environment.
We begin to see that the way in which a person experiences space is fundamental to creating a society that places values on ideals such as integrity and respect. At Ruben Reddy Architects, we strive to create spaces that foster the right kind of human experience.
Further than building inspirational structures, our architecture generates enduring social, environmental and economic returns while creating a sense of place ampng the people who interact with them.
