We believe architectural design must respond to the site’s individual context rather than being image driven. Good architecture enhances people’s quality of life and creates a positive human response. Depending on your wishes, the designs we create may be contemporary or traditional, embracing simplicity and avoiding the over-elaborate. We understand the importance of designing architecture that respects the local environment while exploring appropriate materials and forms. For each project we will investigate and incorporate the principles of energy efficiency as part of the overall design strategy.
Our residential projects have included large and small home extensions, individual houses, affordable and starter homes, new apartments, housing for developers and residential conversions of large listed and historic buildings. In the community, healthcare and education sectors, our work has included a primary school, a day nursery and health centres as well as a community centre, a sea-cadet school and a youth centre for a local authority. As leisure architects we have designed several multi-screen cinema conversions and refurbishment works for the Wimbledon Theatre, a grade II listed building. In the commercial sector, our experience includes restaurants and shops, a car showroom and the extension of a supermarket distribution centre.We welcome enquires of all kinds, from minor works to listed buildings through to new build homes, bespoke housing and large commercial projects.
