Whatever you need, our experienced team of architects, technicians and designers will be right by your side, using the best in standardised, modular or completely bespoke architectural design.
Creativity rooted in real-life needs
We’re a full-service architectural practice that just feels different. Approachable, flexible and always collaborative, we create imaginative responses to your toughest challenges and time constraints, and use proven efficiencies to help your budgets go further.
Every project begins with your ambitions, which we nurture by getting under the skin of what your community really needs. From there we’ll create a concept that works for you and the building’s end-users, whether it’s standardised, hybrid or completely bespoke.
Homes with people right at their heart
We love designing the places people call home, and over the years our team has built up a diverse portfolio of residential projects. Between us, we’ve designed everything from luxury apartments to social housing and student accommodation. We’ve built homes for private clients, masterplanned entire developments and even built our own homes, brick by brick.
Whether we’re creating unique, bespoke designs or using modular construction on restrictive urban sites, we put our clients at the heart of every project. Which all means we’ll be right by your side, whatever you’re planning. From feasibility and concepts to BIM, planning and construction, we’ll involve, inspire, advise and support you, every step of the way.
Empowering the education sector
Year in, year out, the education sector faces tough challenges. Restrictive budgets, limited timescales and the constant pressure of creating more pupil places mean schools, academies and local authorities have difficult decisions to make.
Together we’re creating agile, affordable new ways to meet those challenges, providing inspiring learning environments in communities up and down the country. We’ve helped our clients deliver over 10,000 school places since 2013 – including transforming an entire borough’s education system from three to two-tier. We’d love to help you too.
Every school we build, we learn from – and over the years we’ve learnt a lot. We’ve identified that standardised designs get your project on site sooner, a modular school will take shape in no time and using offsite construction technology means minimal disruption to schools and the surrounding community.
Whether you need a primary, secondary, SEN or early years setting, you’re adding new classrooms or you’re updating existing facilities, we can put all of these techniques to work for you. Because they’re tried-and-tested, they’ll minimise risk, create cost certainty sooner and reduce timescales significantly.
We don’t just deliver schools, we form lasting relationships. We’re pleased to have forged great partnerships with schools, academies and local authorities, as well as tier 1 construction partners and their supply chains.
Maintaining this strong, supportive extended network is intentional. Together we’ve delivered over 10,000 school places, and between us we’ve seen it all. There isn’t a land, funding or delivery challenge that we haven’t tackled before and can’t overcome. This network of experience is there for you to draw on, giving you the answers you need and the confidence your project will be delivered quickly, professionally and to the very highest standard.
Today, we’re also proud to be designing to Department for Education (DfE) specifications, offering our clients the opportunity to build compliant schools and access valuable funding.
Britain’s blue-light services work tremendously hard in the most demanding circumstances, and we’re proud to be providing practical, modern bases for their fleets. From a fire station extension in Stornoway to ‘make-ready’ ambulance centres in the East Midlands, our designs are developed to work in harmony with the daily tasks emergency services teams carry out. As a result, these teams are able to operate with greater efficiency, as well as greater comfort.
Our concepts spring from detailed process and movement diagrams, site security and zoning of public and private spaces. They’re created after spending days on the ground with the crews, mapping footfall and understanding workflows. Up in Stornoway, our team even measured the boat that would bring each modular element from the mainland, making sure they’d arrive safely.
“We have a beautiful building and a lot of pride in it from all quarters. The students love it, the staff feel very lucky to have it, and the parents love it too. The collaboration made the Academy a massive success; the quality is beautiful.” Paul Spyropoulos, Principal, Wixams Academy
