We adopt a rigorous approach to our work, developed through years of experience working alongside clients with high aspirations, often on difficult sites within tightly capped budgets. Our success has been achieved by gaining a through understanding of each individual client’s needs, an appreciation of the specific drivers of each project, a detailed knowledge of the building type, a disciplined and intellectual analysis of the context and by producing imaginative responses and creative solutions.  The buildings designed by the Practice stand the test of time and are being used and enjoyed by large numbers of people every single day, whether as places to live, to work, to learn, to collaborate or simply to socialise and relax.
