About
The practice began as a side gig but went full time in March 2020 (at the start of the pandemic!) when our Director, Bruce, left the world of stable employment to strike out on his own and start building a business from the ground up.
The practice takes on regular commissions and consultancies with clients ranging from self-builders and private individuals to developers and even multinational organisations.
We also undertake our own property development projects as this gives us maximum scope to experiment with innovative designs.
If you are interested in working with us on a project and creating beauty and innovation in 21st century architecture, we would love to work with you! Please do get in touch.

Philosophy
When it comes to our core philosophy and principles, we are rather different.
Whilst the majority of architects are still caught up in the hangovers from 20th century modernism and postmodernism, we believe there is an alternative.
Taking and adapting an amalgamation of principles from an assortment of great philosophers, architects, naturalists, writers and scientists, we believe in creating architecture that follows on from a certain philosophical and ontological position.
The exact nature of that position is too complex to be summed up here, but its results are a set of strong principles that we always follow in our work.
BIM (building information modelling)
We have extensive exterience of using BIM on both small residential and historic projects, as well as on large public buildings. We use BIM on all our projects to improve efficency, perform better project coordination, and reduce costs.
We also use computational design tools to provide accurate manufactuing information and create beautiful, intricate, highly ornamented buildings quickly and efficiently.
