Living...

It has been said that to design a home or place to live for a client is about the most challenging task for an architect.

We have often described it as a little like trying to paint a family portrait, including the landscape, characters and even the pets; capturing a family with their expectations and interplay of relationships, all needing sensitive expression and due allowance.

We have designed places to live for individual clients, families and unknown speculative occupants. Each project has been a different challenge, but these schemes, in our experience, are always delightful, never dull and evolve with varying degrees of expression, scale and budget. Projects have included homes of chalk, oak, steel, glass, thatch, wood, and even a house of corrugated steel, all reflecting and supporting the diversity of client needs.

Our involvement in the creation and completion of each individual scheme has been a real joy.
