SHEEEP is an experimental studio working at the intersection of community, culture & architecture.
SHEEEP is not singular and that’s our strength. We are generalists who have a variety of skills and interests with an emphasis on questioning the systems by which we operate. We grow and collaborate based on current projects and the expertise that are needed. We have a strong set of values that we remind ourselves of on a daily basis (see manual v.01) and this has been a reason why our relationships with clients, collaborators and partners are long term.

Our process is highly collaborative and we don’t like to pretend like we have all the answers. We work with local experts, craftspeople, and artists for almost every single project that result in a humbling learning experience as well as an experiment of sorts. We navigate the boundaries between many disciplines and come fully equipped with a wide range of technical and communication skill sets. We are rigorous, but we are also forever students - we believe in learning from others. As mentioned in no. 7 of our manual we “Listen first, design later”. The initial phase of every project includes lots of absorbing, questioning and understanding from the context and those involved before we shift to design. 

We are interested in projects that are human-focused, and public in nature. We love small-scale interventions that deal with existing conditions, we value the resources that are poured into infrastructure and building and we do our best to work with what exists as much as possible - we don’t like to demolish unless absolutely necessary.
