OUR APPROACH

Commercial

We are a design-driven, commercially aware team, with extensive experience of both speculative and owner-occupier office developments.  Our occupier clients include Vodafone Ltd, Hutchison 3G, Logica CMG, Royal British Legion and Microfocus, for whom we have produced bespoke architectural solutions.

Our commercial developer clients include McKay Securities, New Greenham Trust and British Land plc, to name but a few.  We use our experience of working with occupiers’ requirements to inform speculative commercial decisions - providing a rounded and proactive approach to our commercial projects.

Retail & Leisure

Shopping has become a modern leisure activity.  Leisure providers are increasingly developing their retail offer, blurring the boundaries between these activities and heightening the demand for social interaction and experience.  This challenging environment has meant that our extensive work in this sector includes retail-led town centre regeneration projects, supermarkets, and new and refurbished department stores, alongside health and fitness centres, golf clubs and cinemas.

Education

We firmly believe that education and learning are essential to a good quality of life.  They should take place in a safe, stimulating and engaging environment, created from materials that match the learners’ personal needs.  We are committed to an inclusive working ethic, where high quality planning and design deliver successful schools, safer and stronger communities, thriving town centres and a cleaner and more sustainable environment.

We believe that all children deserve well-designed surroundings.  Our experience ranges from nursery to secondary schools, in both the private and the public sectors, and includes schools for children with special needs.

Cultural 

We believe that cultural buildings are one of the most rewarding commissions for an architect, as a cultural project is usually required to address the needs of the wider community and comprise many levels of complexity and desire.  To be able to enhance somebody’s experience within a building is a unique skill that we always aim to achieve.  Often working with committee-based clients, we have successfully delivered new libraries, churches, mosques, performing arts facilities and civic centres.

BIM

We support the use of the latest building processes and technologies to aid and improve building design and project delivery.  Using a BIM (Building Information Modelling) methodology, we adopt a collaborative approach ensuring accuracy of information and speed of delivery as part of an integrated design process.  Our projects are developed using the latest 3D Revit software to improve design quality whilst enabling us to engage fully with our clients by communicating our ideas through high quality visualisations.
