The new build projects we work on seek to respond to their immediate environment. We work hard to achieve the best out of the site and the client’s brief. We often use local materials in a modern way, with a focus on high levels of finish.
We specialise in working within highly sensitive locations such as National Parks and Conservation Areas.
Our team members practicing in the contemporary design field have extensive experience in a range of sectors, delivering high end sports facilities, student and classroom accommodation, as well as bespoke new houses for private clients.
The construction industry is realigning itself with the choices it makes around sustainability. As we design out products and materials which are sourced from cementitious and petro-chemicals, we are increasingly using natural products which are both sustainable and or recycled-as well as safer for the installer and end user.
We seek out solutions which are breathable’. These are products which can contribute to an enhanced internal environment, while simultaneously reducing carbon emissions.
We’re at the forefront of developing techniques and thinking when it comes to building conservation and sustainable new-builds.
We use our in-depth understanding of traditional building techniques. Our designs seek to utilise products, materials and design led solutions which are borne out of our work in historic buildings.
We understand and research new ways of doing things. Through our interest in sustainability, we are always looking out for ingenious ways in new design and development, often against the odds.
“It’s a delight to hear an architect who not only really believes in what he is saying and describing, but then actually puts it into action as well; and it was quite obvious that this belief and desire was coming from you, not just because your client has asked you to do something and you were trying to ‘sell it’. I’m always very appreciative of those who carry through the strength of their convictions, whatever they are – not just in the planning process”
