We involve ourselves in the entire design process from first concept to the final details of buildings, interiors, furniture, lighting and landscapes. Our priority is to exceed our clients’ expectations, and we consistently achieve this with a passionate approach to the design and execution of our projects.
As an RIBA Chartered Practice we take pride in our rigorous and exacting service and we demand the same high standards of the people and companies we work with. Ideally we take on a leading role as a single point of contact for the client, although we can adapt to suit the requirements of each client and project, working as part of a larger team where necessary.
From our central London office we take commissions in London, the UK and abroad. Every one of our projects is the product of an exhaustive process of questioning, testing and imagining – looking for the perfect way to combine the aspirations of the client, the requirements of the brief and the particularities of the site. With a fresh and inventive approach we try to make sure our clients enjoy the experience of designing and building architecture as much as we do.
OUR UNIQUE PROCESS
Our process is structured to achieve seamless integration of all stages and aspects of design without artificial disciplinary boundaries between them.
We thoroughly explore the spatial and functional opportunities of the site and seek out the best possible solutions. We discuss the brief in a series of meetings and develop the proposals through a rigorous process of drawing and evaluation. By the end of this stage, we will be sure that the client is completely happy with the defined core of the project.
We will devise a strategy for achieving Planning and Listed Building Consent, submit the documents, liaise with the local authority and oversee the applications process to completion.
We assemble the project team, draw up a budget and programme and then proceed to a full architectural and interior drawings package and specification. As leader of the design team, we incorporate all the information from consultants into our drawings package this is the only way to guarantee the perfect end product. We discuss every detail of the project with the client.
We can recommend appropriate contractors, subcontractors and specialists to cover all aspects of the project and organise either a formal or negotiated tender process to suit the client¹s needs.
We maintain a regular site presence to ensure that the project is executed exactly according to our design. On the contractual side we inspect the quality of the work and materials, and monitor site progress. We are devoted to ensuring the highest standards of materials and workmanship.
