Architecture, Design and Planning

Good architecture and design enhance our living environment. They improve the quality of life and well-being for those who live and move amongst well-conceived buildings and spaces. We treat each project as a site specific undertaking that embraces change through a robust and sequential design process; a process that engages on many levels to promote sustainability and contribution to its local setting. We do not have a house style but work with our clients at an early stage to articulate their aspirations. This then informs the project brief embedding quality, economy and function alongside a wider realm of aesthetic, environmental and cultural demands.

As a full services architectural practice we work from feasibility, through design, technical development and implementation. As we are research-led our work often breaks the mould of standard practice allowing us to offer a broader range of integrated services and support. We undertake both contemporary and traditional commissions and source appropriate specialist consultant teams to fulfil support consultant roles. In-house professional planning services, landscape design and significant experience in project and construction management underwrite our core architectural services.

In an increasingly complex planning environment we believe that architecture and planning must work hand in glove if we are to develop a viable project strategy that takes full account of planning policy yet exploits the opportunities and constraints of place. In this way we balance pragmatism and innovation. We have delivered in London and countrywide almost 100% planning success for our clients over the past decades for both large and small projects embracing private homes, pocket and mixed use regeneration schemes, and larger residential development. A very small ratio have been taken to and won at appeal. We have delivered significant enhancement in land values and contributed well-formed architecture and external spaces that have benefitted our clients and the community at large.
