Work defines a significant sphere of human endeavor and the dynamics are in constant flux.  The challenge facing organisations today is to anticipate the impact of technology on the changing nature of work and workplace.


The right working environment, more than ever, is crucial to an organisation’s success.  Workplace design can improve productivity, quality, product and service delivery, employee retention and knowledge sharing. dwp|suters design philosophy is informed by the urban context and the interaction between public and private space. Unique design responses are formulated, based on culture, workstyle and the corporate identity of each organisation, creating pride and an inspirational working environment.
