As architects we enjoy the challenge of working in sensitive settings and on historic buildings and structures where our rigorous methodologies and commitment to research allow us to get under the skin of a project and understand what is important to protect and what can be changed.
By intelligently exploring the history, context and significance of each site we find inspiration for our designs and help inform our clients’ decisions. Experience tells us that the very best solutions can often emerge from the most challenging environments.
Our design process has been developed to be inclusive, collaborative and transparent. Sharing and explaining our findings with all stakeholders so that consensus can be developed, expectations can be managed and the process of change carefully implemented.
Our projects in this field vary from large scale masterplans, through to complex building projects to modest restorations. In each and every case our ambition is to extend the useful life of historic buildings by respecting the past, embracing the present and building the future.
