We are a friendly team of architects motivated by great design and the difference this makes to the lives of people that occupy our buildings.
We pride ourselves on our ingenuity in maximising value and identifying the small things that will make the difference to your project.
We are inspired by contemporary design, the context and materiality of a place, and in dissolving the boundaries between inside and outside. We do this by manipulating daylight, extending space and framing views.
We strive to find imaginative, inspirational design solutions that are of our time but rooted in the history and context of a place.
We love engaging with our clients to find a shared vision and develop a narrative that is conceived in its context and achieves the brief.
Our unique buildings reflect the clients we work with and the people we design for.
We are interested in architecture and contemporary interventions that reflects our culture and time and particularly enjoy renewing, extending and refurbishing buildings. This is integral to our practice’s ethos in protecting resources and reducing our impact on the natural environment.
We employ a mix of staff that have a unique skill set and who exemplify our ambition, creativity and desire for cost-effective, technically coherent and imaginative architecture.
We are experts in maximising the value of a project or site, achieving difficult planning permissions and finding solutions to constrained sites.
We have the latest computer hardware and software at our disposal and 3D design, Virtual Reality, Building Information Modelling (BIM) and animation are integral to our design process and allow clients to experience our buildings before they are built.
Having worked with Footprint Architects for the past 15-months, I can highly recommend them. They have been hugely supportive, innovative and approachable, which has led to the completion of our high spec Summerwood Campus. Summerwood is a post 16-19 provision for students with Aspergers Syndrome. The ultimate testament to Footprint Architects lies with our students. Not only did the team come in to discuss key things like wall colours, floor types and specific requests, the students themselves love their new provision.
At the heart of Footprint’s service lies unwavering attention to detail. By matching creative flair with thoughtful
consideration of our needs and a sympathetic understanding of our local environment, Footprint Architects have delivered
for us buildings of the highest quality design and functionality
Footprint Architects supported the school with the inception of the new and transformation of our old school buildings and listened closely to the ideas of the children, parents and staff. Their clear understanding of the needs of the school, combined with their approachability and dedication to the job made them a pleasure to work with and the finished product is outstanding.
The initial design captured the essence of what we wanted immediately and needed very few refinements. The vision our architect demonstrated in working with a very difficult, steeply sloping garden was remarkable and the end result is elegant and refined, delivering way more than we had hoped. The entire project was expertly handled and a joy to be a part of.
Footprint were always on site and available, they gave a considered opinion based on knowledge. We felt safe in their hands.
The final product exceeded all expectations. A really friendly, professional organisation that was a pleasure to work with.
The team at Footprint are professional and highly competent architects who have provided us with innovative and attractive schemes which have proven popular with purchasers. They have a pragmatic approach to design and are always mindful of build complexity and cost whilst, at the same time, still being able to create an interesting and desirable product.
Outstanding Service with top management attending regular client meetings, which is key to
