Our specialism is in designing places to live – homes, housing, student accommodation, co-living flats, starter homes, later living homes, extra-care homes, and so on – to sell or for long-term rent.
We also have strong experience in the education, commercial and leisure sectors.
While the procurement route, policy environment, and overarching motivation for development may vary from client to client, the essential architectural skills do not. High-end luxury or decent affordability – the design thinking is very similar.
In all cases, we respect the budget, listen hard, develop the brief for added value, and can oversee the build knowledgeably right through to hand-over.
We are alive to the uncertainty inherent in construction projects, programmed to pre-empt common challenges and manage risks for a profitable outcome.
We have hard-won expertise in negotiating the London planning context, confidently handling awkward or sensitive sites for viable consents.
Because we understand how buildings are built, we collaborate well with contractors, able to champion the design accurately to the moment the building is occupied.
