Sector Overview

We love designing spaces where people can interact, be entertained, relax and to physically and mentally recharge.

Our designs are rooted by a strong sense of place, making memorable destinations that inspire and give people space to dream, reflect, play, and that linger long in their memories. Whether we’re doing a feasibility for a new community theatre, designing a new leisure centre, or a hotel refurbishment, we never forget the impact that the environment has on people.

Patrick Arends is our sector lead for Hospitality, Leisure and Culture.
