ABOUT MONO

MONO Design & Build, inherited from LAM's hardware product Pty Ltd, has a history of nearly 40 years since its establishment.

Since MONO was founded, parametric design has always been our design methodology. We believe that the parametric design is an inevitable outcome of the digital age.Parametric design means the interconnection among design and other professions and represents a closer connection between designers and users.It allows us to consider multiple factors, including form, material, dimension, color, cost and timeline simultaneously at the very beginning of a project. We consider this as a more organized and systematic way to understand the technology involved in design and construction.

Design is the art of construction. The view of construction is embedded in each step of our design at the beginning of every project. Our confidence to embrace challenges lies in the industrial experience accumulated for nearly 40 years in metal manufacturing. Our transformation from manufacture to design is powered by the long history, abundant industrial experiences, complete production resources and advanced technology.

The essence of design is to solve problems with creativity. As designers, we expect our design to evoke the happiness within life and rediscover our life, city and nature.

We strongly believe that no design exists without the site and the context. Demand, condition and constraint from different clients is distinctive, which also leads to the breakthrough in design.Such a design is unique, so is the fascination of design.  MONO believes that the value of the original design is far greater than the profits in a long term, and it will bring a profound influence to the city where we live.
