We create spaces to learn, live, work and to be together that sit in the heart of local communities. From boosting wellbeing to attracting customers, our clients’ ambitions are different, but we always think about how the space will be used in the present and made fit for the future.
We can turn even the most challenging sites into amazing opportunities. By carefully analysing the site and understanding the local context, we create buildings that make the most of their location, while respecting and celebrating their surroundings.
This context-driven approach can help in gaining planning permission on potentially contentious sites.
The effects of climate change and extremes of weather are having a major impact on our everyday lives.

Passivhaus (or Passive House) is an highly effective energy and comfort standard for new buildings. Passive house buildings use lots of insulation, fresh air, natural daylight and the sun to create high performing buildings that support wellbeing, all year round.
