Philosophy

Obviously the most important people in the design process are the clients and end users of the building.  Our  services are focused around the needs and aspirations of the client. Where we can we like to push the boundaries of these aspirations, but at all times we recognise the need to take the client with us in this process, and taylor the project to their budget. The best buildings come from strong working relationships with committed clients and creative consultants who understand the power that  architecture has to transform.

We believe in sustainable modern architecture, although our work is evenly split between new and old

We try and adhere to the following principles

  • The notion that ”Form follows Function” meaning that the result of design should derive directly from its purpose
  • simplicity and clarity of forms
  • visual expression of structure (as opposed to the hiding of structural elements)
  • We consider that  the true nature or natural appearance of a material ought to be seen rather than concealed or altered to represent something else
  • The design should aim to maximize the benefits the building can bring to clients, community and economy whilst minimizing the the impact of buildings construction and operation on the environment
