Award Winning UK Architects
Working across three sectors has taught us that that success in each one engenders a common value..…good memories. We, therefore, value working closely with each client and developing a relationship of trust where good memories can be added to the built form…ultimately providing not just a house but a home (Living), a home from home (Learning) or a unique and joyful experience to take home (Leisure).
We see our work as an honest response to contemporary lifestyle with a healthy desire to maximise natural light (perhaps, some would say, to the point of obsession) and well being. Informed by context we really enjoy celebrating the everyday – making connections between inside and outside spaces, create timeless places that celebrate views, changing weather or people going about their daily business.
However as our client’s aspirations have expanded we have developed our own ideas, tools, and working methods to encompass pressing social issues and the complex challenges of a global culture. Our approach to working with clients has become more agile. Its scope has broadened enormously, moving from a “traditional” and circumscribed intervention to a more “strategic” and omnipresent one. Lessons from each sector now inform others and pushing the envelope back, by directly engaging specialist disciplines such as Product, Spatial Designers and Makers, help us re-think and question our intent in the places we create, and elements we make , through visionary design.
Our trans-disciplinary approach offers an interaction opportunity for both ourselves and our clients to develop bespoke environments and find that new exclusive life experience.

His level of knowledge, expertise and professionalism are second to none and his passion for his industry is evident with every word he says. Mark is hugely committed to ensuring that clients realise not only their immediate dreams for their home, but also the dreams they didn’t know they were going to have.
How many architects can give you that? Mark is also dedicated to saving the Earth’s resources through the use of alternative technologies and renewable energy sources and his beautiful work reflects just that.”J. Bramble, East Devon, Customer
“I have never really spoken professionally to an architect before; always imagined it would be a complicated business. Mark from the very beginning put me at ease. This was someone I could talk to, relate ideas that I thought were a little too inane to mention, and Mark knew where I was coming from. More importantly, he knew how to take my ideas and realise them on paper.
He clearly understood my requirements, both in terms of what I expected from the project physically and ecologically but also how I wanted the building to function for me on a more subtle psychological sense.”
