The word “Desypher” has its origins in the Arabic “sifir”, meaning zero.

The use of "zero" advanced by Muslim mathematicians, had a tremendous impact, unravelling mathematical concepts and furthering scientific discoveries.


When first introduced into medieval Europe it was regarded as an abstract, unclear notion – even with a level of suspicion!  And so “sifir” or “cipher” came to mean something coded and obscure and paradoxically “decipher” meant to unravel the code.

And so, we took on the blended title, “desypher”, as a declaration; to invite experiences beyond the obvious and to make apparent what is misunderstood and by creating architectural responses that promote positive interaction.
