We are an exciting enthusiastic architectural practice with an interest in high quality contemporary design, which gives consideration to context, materiality, design integrity and attention to detail.
We realise what a big commitment each project is to each client, and so every project begins with a chat, where we listen: We work hard to ensure our designs deliver solutions which best meet or ideally exceed each individual client’s expectations. Key to this for us is working with our clients throughout, listening to them, and helping them formulate a strong, clear brief, which is both aspirational and achievable, giving structure to the proposals and clarity on how to proceed.
Whether for your home or for your business, we want our buildings to delight and inspire of course, but they must also be practical and usable, and exhibit value to you as our clients, so that you feel that the outcomes are right for you and that you have been part of the design and creation process.
We can provide a full range of architectural services including Stages 0-7 of the RIBA Plan of Work or can provide services pertaining to a particular project stage or stages, such as Feasibility / Concept, Statutory Approvals, Contract Administration, Detailed Design, or Tender / Construction Documentation. We would be happy to discuss with you, what happens within these stages, how we would work with you at each stage, and which stages you would need us for based upon the nature of your project.
In addition to traditional architectural services, we also offer architectural consultancy for matters which concern an architect’s intellectual property.
