WHO WE ARE

Our mission as architects is to create beautiful and memorable places, which first and foremost reflect the people using them, giving a sense of ownership to a wide audience whether it’s a public library or a university laboratory. We start with the customer experience of the space, a lesson learned from retail, and through listening and collaborating create a shared vision for how a building will work & the message it gives to visitors and residents. We have grown to a practice of 35 and have been based in Clerkenwell for the last 25 years.

 

 

 

OUR APPROACH

We are currently creating new and inspiring public buildings such as the new Conference Centre in Blackpool’s Winter Gardens and a new library in Thamesmead, designed to ensure maximum public engagement and usage of innovative new public spaces.

Our work includes sensitive refurbishment of Grade I and II listed buildings, again to create welcoming and memorable public experiences for services such as libraries and archives.

Putting the user first, our design of inspiring workplace and office projects includes the innovative headquarters building for Walsall Housing Group and the major remodelling of the Grade II listed headquarters of the Royal College of Nursing.

 

WORKING ACROSS EUROPE

We have developed our own teams working across over thirty countries in Europe, with local language speakers travelling and working in markets, as well as partnerships with local architectural practices. This has created a rich company culture.
