Practice Announcement

It is with great pleasure that we can now announce the next stage in the development of our practice.  For the last 18 months, we have been working in collaboration with another practice, Morse Webb, with Dominic Morse and Peter Webb becoming directors of Gotelee Orchard-Lisle Limited.    Morse Webb have a similar background of producing high quality design and buildings, and in particular have a complementary client base within the independent education sector.

With this collaboration, we now benefit from the additional expertise and enthusiasm of Morse Webb, a younger dynamic practice, and the combined workforce includes eleven architects plus further technical and administrative staff.   We have already been successfully working together on several projects.

We will continue as two separate practices working from our respective offices in Newbury and Bramley, near Basingstoke, but eventually we will merge as a single practice.

Who are we?

We have always aimed to provide a service rather in excess of what is normally expected of architects, and this has resulted in the majority of our projects being from clients with whom we have worked before.  The range of design extends from sensitive work on listed buildings to new modern complexes.

As lead consultants, we invariably act as Project Managers to ensure that the project is properly managed.   We are a design-led practice with more architects than assistants resulting in a strong emphasis towards good design and quality in delivery of the procurement process.  We know that the minimum standard expected by each client is a service that delivers:

  • A project that is completed on time
  • A project that is completed on budget
  • A completed building that is problem free

We also would add a further expectation – our client should enjoy and be proud of the new building.
