OUR VALUES

A collaborative client design relationship is the key to a successful project.

Every project is unique! We approach each new challenge by understanding your personal aspirations, needs and values through face-to-face discussions.  Contextual understanding of the property and the site landscape, in addition to historical and vernacular knowledge form an important part of the design response. This is where the personal story between people and place can be created. We value developing good open relationships between you (our client), the design team, building contractors and specialists, all working collaboratively to fulfil the ambition of your tailor made project.

 

Based in an AONB in the Wye Valley we have a deep respect for the rural landscape.  We can empathise and understand the challenges surrounding rural locations; existing buildings, listed properties, the ecological considerations  and conservation areas. Where new and old, contemporary and traditional  begin to work together, something truly distinctive and beautiful can be created!

 

Energy efficiency and renewable materials are prioritised for all of our projects; from the thermal efficiency of the property to the natural interior finishes. We have Passivhaus Designer services in-house for your new build projects and also are delighted to be part of the Architects Journal 'Retrofirst' campaign having  extensive experience of converting existing or historic property into an energy efficient buildings.

HOW DO WE ADD + VALUE?

In return for creative freedom we like to explore, nurture and test solutions to make the most appropriate response, promoting beautifully crafted and detailed architecture and curated interiors, suited to the surrounding context and environment. We adapt our distinctive style in response to  each clients personality and needs, as we seek to maximise the potential inherent in a site and its landscape, to provide delight in the spaces created to live, work or play. ​

 

Our honest and pragmatic working practice allows our clients to feel in control of the build and refurbishment costs, using value architecture to problem solve without aesthetic compromise.
