We believe the quality of the world that surround each one of us has a direct impact on the standards of our everyday life. If at home, in our workplace, or when we need help to feel well again. This simple concept drives all our work whether a large-scale office, an airport facility, retail space, a medical centre, or a home.

Design to us is, therefore, all-embracing. From the purely functional and environmental performance of space to a concern for what physical and cultural context that a building will have, even the simple joy of how space captures natural light.

Our aim is to deliver architecture that is a seamless experience, from exterior to interior. We need to gain an understanding of a client’s needs and the way spaces will be used by them. We have created interiors from private houses to office blocks; from medical centres, to industrial buildings.
Materials selection, use of colour, quality of light, and the selection of furnishings need to be coordinated as part of the overall scheme.

We work with clients to help them evaluate their needs. This dialogue generally leads to new ways of thinking for them. How they live in their home, or use their workplace, medical centre, or civic building. From the brief development to spatial analysis, our workplace consultancy helps us to develop solutions for a wide range of buildings.

Wherever possible we seek to have a role with post-occupancy assessments. Helping occupants to find and enjoy the full potential of their new building. We have conducted user surveys in order to learn from practical experience.

From children drawing has been our way of thinking. Now it is our means of communicating how a buildings might fit together in 3D or we used it to explore how a space relate to another. We use it to calculate and evaluate a design from concept to construction.
