The practice strength is finding innovative design solutions for difficult sites or buildings to utilize their full potential and value. These could be in sensitive rural landscapes, awkward urban locations or unpromising existing buildings.
The opportunities and constraints of the site, context and prevailing climate are all closely studied and balanced with the project requirements to inform considered design responses which are holistic and sustainable.
Design solutions are thoughtful and site specific, meeting clients needs in simple, direct and interesting ways, regularly exceeding client and stakeholder expectations to create relaxed, sustainable, projects of character with a strong sense of place.
