The studio mainly focuses and work in residential design however the principal has expertise in commercial, leisure, urban design and master-planning.
The aim of the practice is to provide bespoke high-end design strategies and solutions for every individual project. The site and client’s requirements inform our approach to the design brief and as such we approach each project without preconception. Our primary focus is to create inspirational sustainable designs that respond thoughtfully to the individual needs of the site and client. We design energy efficient buildings that achieve a minimum A2 energy (from November 2019) rating on the Building Energy Rating scale.
