What We Do

We invest in our capacity to visualise and even walk though our work, using rendering software and virtual reality.

We also continually invest in our people. The Practice offers in-house expertise in heritage and building conservationlow-carbon and Passivhaus design and certified FitwelWELLBuilding principles.

All of this expertise informs our approach to every project, and in-turn allows us to develop a unique response to every site, and solutions tailored to individual client need.


We believe our role is not just to design beautiful spaces; we offer a truly rounded service, acknowledging that good architecture fuses design with commercial insight, strategic thinking and excellence in delivery.


We work confidently across all RIBA stages, designing and delivering award-winning and community-supporting buildings and neighbourhoods. We design for things to be built.

We quickly turn around feasibility proposals to assess the viability of a site, and are adept at developing planning strategies to maximise collaborative approaches and success. We work with new build and retrofit, across a range of project sectors, enjoying the challenges and opportunities each context offers.



We often work with clients before a project is a project; before a site is found or a definitive programme agreed. We work creatively to develop the brief, advise on strategy and the appointment of consultant teams. Our services include dynamic briefing and project scoping, stakeholder management, design team leadership, ‘design guardian’ services (client-side monitoring) for Design & Build contracts and contract administration.



We provide solutions which respect the past and are responsive to future needs.  We have worked extensively in heritage contexts and with Listed and locally-notable buildings. Alongside our heritage-experienced team we have an in-house conservation architect, allowing us to produce reports for statutory consents and to balance commercial viability with sensitivity to retention of fabric and stakeholder interests.



We have Passiv-Haus and low energy design Principals in-house and take every opportunity s to reduce our impact on the world. We have trained carbon-reduction and Passivhaus skills in-house.



We are proud to lead the charge on Wellbeing design – it makes commercial sense. We are Fitwel accredited and working toward WELLBuilding accreditation, and working with clients across schemes to deliver the best in livable design.



We have in-house qualified Principal Designers well-versed in CDM and safety legislation. We provide services on a range of projects to ensure Clients are meeting their CDM obligations, and advise clients on external appoitnments when project complexities require it.



We use Enscape and TwinMotion alongside our 3D modelling software to produce visuals in-house, and work closely with professional visualisers to achieve evocative imagery that can be used to communicate proposals and support funding and investment, planning and marketing.

We also use this technology to produce VR imagery, giving 360° panoramic views of developments. Using this technology not only allows us to share the experience of future developments with clients, but also to review and test ideas in real-time, spotting areas for consideration which traditional modelling and drawing does not provide.
