We undertake a wide range of residential projects from Kitchen Extensions to new-build houses and luxury apartments. Our portfolio ranges from traditional vernacular and rural to contemporary and bold juxtapositions. We action minimal moves to maximum effect.
Initially we take into consideration the surrounding site context and the individual client’s brief. Then progress by looking at the client’s requirements and see how these best fit the proposal. In the early phases of design we have the ability to bring all the design elements together by investigating which parts fit the jigsaw. We also have the ability to bring our experience and knowledge to the table and employ the appropriate architectural devices. This approach enables each proposal to reach its full potential.
Some of the key points we employ are site context typography and orientation. Our designs also employ the use of natural daylight, open plan and inside-outside aspects to the garden. These devices along with others enable an optimal use and enjoyment of a dwelling.
A majority of our clients now are looking for sustainable construction methods with responsibly sourced building materials. We are an authority on green roofs and are increasingly expanding our palette of sustainable products. This includes energy efficiency with the use of new and evolving systems. We have external consultants to advise on specialist products and systems including passive heating and solar systems.
Our approach is that green design should enhance and not hinder or detract from the architecture. This seems to fit the new wave of green products which are designed to integrate and low impact rather than stick out. It used to be that green architecture was a vulgar display termed “green wash” but like all good design, when used in the right places it can work wonders with the simplest solution.
