Regardless of size, scale or budget our approach to all residential projects is to primarily understand the client’s vision and then work very hard to explore options to find a living space that exceeds expectations yet remain practical. All our projects start with an Inspiration Day which objectively challenges all those pre conceptions (design, programme, budget), without the risk of being offensive, with the sole aim of agreeing a way forward and forming a mental route map of how to deliver the overall vision.
Sound sustainable practice should not be a bolt on or gimic. We employ nature based solutions both to inform and provide cost-effective, multi-purpose and flexible alternatives. Working with nature, rather than against it, can further pave the way towards a more resource efficient, competitive and greener solution. Whether this is creating or restoring green spaces within an urban context, reducing waste or efficient use of energy we integrate the most appropriate solution as an intrinsic part of our residential design process.
We always endeavour to use, or reuse, natural materials to create a design integrity that is simple, personally relevant, robust and understandable.
We understand the complexities of the planning system and have an enviable record of achieving consents within challenging situations. Our experience ranges from contemporary one-off houses, or small developments, in sensitive locations (city centres, para 55, Conservation Areas, AONB’s and Green belt) to urban mixed used or multiple units for developers.
