About Architecture Firm

Designing Together

We believe strongly in teamwork and we encourage open-minded collaboration within our design teams – with our Clients, investors and most importantly, with the people for whom we design.

This collaborative approach helps create a design process that is rewarding and enjoyable to all, allowing us to successfully address specific project requirements, budgets, deadlines and deliver projects that are endowed with a sense of ownership for all involved.

From masterplans to extensions, commercial buildings to cultural, we seek to stay true to our core-beliefs and to bring the same level of energy to every project, no matter how small or large.

Our growing team in Leigh-on-Sea is working on a number of exciting projects in both the UK and Ireland, including bespoke residential projects, restaurant, office and retail developments.

About Architecture Firm

People, Presence and Place

Our architecture is centred around people and their lives. We seek to design buildings that are engaging on a personal and collective level, promoting social interaction and providing the formwork for authentic living.

We believe in designing for real life – real surfaces in real spaces, real sounds and real experiences – to create an architecture with a natural physicality, materiality and openness that we call Presence.

We aim to create an architecture that is infused with an innate sense of place, responding and adapting to its context, from local to global, environmental to economic, social to private.
