The Practice

 

The practice consists of a small, friendly team of Architects and Designers. This multi-disciplinary expertise is applied imaginatively and analytically to all our projects to develop creative, cost-effective solutions, often within tight financial and time constraints.

 

Our work is about many things but paramount is the attempt to make things well and respond genuinely to the particular requirements of each client and site. Much of our best work has been achieved on very low budgets.

 

Increasingly our projects are also driven by issues of sustainability and energy efficiency. Current projects incorporate the latest developments in solar heating, photovoltaics, water harvesting and recycling, geothermal and wind power.

 

Since its inception the practice has undertaken a wide range of work in the community, residential and workplace sectors. Many of these projects have won awards and most have been exhibited and published in more than 200 publications in both the UK and abroad. Our work has also been featured on the BBC, CNN, ITV, Channel 4 and Sky television channels.

 

The early years of the practice were dominated by conversion projects, many of which involved buildings of historic interest, for individual clients as well as housing associations and property developers.

Since then the range and scale of the practice’s work has grown considerably and now includes new build projects on urban and rural sites, interior design for a variety of uses and ranging in scale from 60 to 1500 square metres, exhibitions, furniture and product design.

 

The practice has also worked abroad with designs for sites in Australia, China and Singapore and completed projects in Germany, Japan and the USA.

 

To date the practice has won forty architecture and design awards, including twice winning the RIBA Stephen Lawrence Prize for the best UK building costing under £1,000,000, three times being shortlisted for the RIBA Manser Medal for the best new house in the UK and the EU, and twice being shortlisted for the biennial Mies van der Rohe Award for the best building in Europe.
