'Beauty in life and ornament'.
That is the best one-line summary of what we believe.
Most contemporary architects subscribe to some derivation of 20th century modernism. We do not. Some old-school architects subscribe to purist forms of traditionalism. We do not.
We believe you can take the best traits of traditional architecture and reimagine them in futuristic and innovative ways. We believe you can combine the likes of arts & crafts, neo-gothic, art deco, art nouveau and futurism, and add in biointegration, bioreceptivity and biomimicry to create a truly new form & style of architecture.
We try to do as much self-generated work as possible as it gives us the freedom to take risks. For the right client and the right project however, we do take commissions. These are usually self-builders, private individuals or developers.
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 get in touch by emailing info[at]buckland.co.

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 efficiency, 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.
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.
