The firm prioritizes constructive ideas exchange and joint working between all team members, reflected in a flat working hierarchy. Fresh thinking and originality is supported by the involvement of the team's principals in architectural education and writing, which nourishes the firm’s production. The collaborative working style and emphasis on intellectual creativity generates an 'atelier' atmosphere in the office. Dagher Hanna & Partners' self-designed premises give built expression to its working philosophy. The open office floorplan facilitates free communication between staff, whilst the distinctive interior featuring exposed electro-mechanical elements echo the transparent working style between partners and the architectural team. The office is accessed via a corridor entrance sided with glazing that offers open views onto the office interior; the visitor is thus invited into the office as a partner in production rather than just a client.
