Discipline Overview

‘We shape buildings, then buildings shape us’. This thinking underpins our approach to architecture.

We strive to create buildings that respond to their context and climate, as well as our client’s budget, with a focus on exploiting opportunities to make memorable places.

Consequently, we don’t have a ‘signature-style’. Every design evolves as a solution to a unique set of challenges which we approach with ‘signature-thinking’ – a thoughtful, creative process that allows the character and ideas of each project to flourish in its own way. We call this Thoughtful Design.‘We shape buildings, then buildings shape us’. This thinking underpins our approach to architecture.

Philip Watson is our Head of Design
