Our approach is personal. In every part of our process, we see you as our collaborators.
Successful buildings aren’t solely the result of good architects, but solid relationships. When a project achieves its full potential, it’s because everyone works together – us, you, engineers, surveyors, builders, makers and suppliers.
Although good design doesn’t cost the earth – because we make sure the right budget goes into the areas that make the biggest difference – the development of a building is still one of the biggest investments you’ll make in a lifetime. We believe you should be involved in every aspect.
We value face-to-face meetings – listening to what you want, exploring what’s possible, and asking questions. We translate all of that dialogue into a piece of unparalleled architecture.
Communication doesn’t end there. We’ll regularly meet with you throughout all phases of the project, making sure every single element of the building design is considered and refined.
The first stages of design development are critical in achieving an exceptional final project. They involve bringing together the themes that come up through site context analysis, as well early discussions, and developing a range of solutions to tease out what’s really important.
At this point, we focus not just on ideas, but the clarity of those concepts in presentation. We want to explore a range of options together – knowing that not all of them will be perfect, to reinforce what’s right for you.
To give you a full picture of what that could be, we use a range of mediums – from sketches and drawings, to perspective images and renders, as well as physical models and sample boards.
We see the project through to the very end – collaborating with contractors, suppliers, builders and craftspeople throughout the site operation stages. During construction, we’ll assist with internal material choices. Factors like interior design are things you’ll be conscious of every day – we want these details to fit with your vision, down to door handles and light switches.
This approach helps us to both understand and control things like phasing, construction programme, materials, potential advancement with building technologies, and beyond – helping us to deliver your perfect project, on time and within budget.
