About Us

Our approach has been refined over time by a rich mix of things. From years of formal training and professional experience through to passion projects and collaborative work. All these have culminated in the mix we bring to our architecture. Craftsmanship, materials, problem-solving design, building and interiors are all part of who we are. Over the years we’ve not shied away from rolling up our sleeves. The discipline of being on site or in the workshop has taught us much that sitting behind a computer could not. A hand-crafted, hands-on approach has enabled us to learn and apply what really works. 

Our portfolio includes projects from the private, public and commercial sectors. We hope it communicates well to you our belief that when progressive design is fused with age old craft, some of the best ideas emerge. Together with a careful consideration of context and local materials, we strive to create buildings that settle well into their environments too. With our unique experience on-site including a number of self-build projects, we also apply a strong understanding of the financial constraints and our client's business case to our architectural services, and will work hard to make the most of any budget.

How We Work

The practice operates across architecture, design and making. Our diverse experience allows us to break down the boundaries of these disciplines and offer you a professional, personal and highly creative service. We are interested in crafted solutions to your project, be it a new house or extension, an overarching spatial masterplan or a one-off furniture commission. We are also used to working to a wide range of budgets, and are equally at home on small and large projects alike. We are committed to the highest levels of professionalism and are an RIBA Chartered practice.
