Architecture & Design

Our long standing reputation and focus designing buildings sets us apart from other architectural practices.  We seek always to understand the individual client’s ethos and style and, in particular, are experienced working within Conservation Areas, Historic Landscapes and with Listed Buildings and the sensitive approach to architectural design this entails.

The varied nature of our clients means we take a diverse, creative and individual approach to design.  Whether bold contemporary or quietly traditional, there is never a pre-determined style or solution.  We understand the best design comes from developing both a strong relationship with the client and an intimate understanding of the site and brief.

This is where our experience shows in particular.  We listen:  We listen carefully to our client’s needs and, through a proven sketch design process, skillfully evolve both the brief and design together.

Principally among these interests is of course cost control.  Again, our experience means we truly understand the meaning of balancing expenditure against the client’s requirement.  We take the careful management of costs seriously and work closely together with the Quantity Surveyor right from the point at which our pencil first hits paper to ensure cost management runs closely alongside the design.

We hope our varied and wide ranging portfolio of buildings; be they new-build, extension or refurbishments, illustrates the successful outcomes to our creative yet structured approach to our Architecture and Design.
