We are a close knit studio with a social purpose. We believe that everyone should live, work and play in places that enable and inspire them. We are fuelled by inspirational clients from community/ third sector, heritage, residential, religious, and workplace sectors. Many people we work with are motivated by improving the lives of those in their communities. We believe that architecture can reflect their values and enhance their activities. Since 1969, we have evolved an immersive and user-focused approach to design, and discovered ways to engage meaningfully with people who otherwise have little influence. This approach is underpinned by a pragmatism that is appreciated by community and commercially-minded clients alike. We consider a project’s long-term sustainability, and apply our experience in heritage and community to unlock the viability of schemes.
