Our principle business pillars are Housing, Place Making, Education and Regeneration through the reuse of heritage assets.

Our business ethos underpins the way we work. We listen before we act and work creatively with others to solve problems and achieve collaborative solutions; creating new places, regenerating old ones.

We take cognisance of local aspects of Heritage, Culture, Environment and Economics as a fundamental principle to creating sustainable living and working communities.

We are involved in the development of intelligent construction to create affordable low carbon housing using local community scale factories and integrated supply chains.

We operate globally but act locally. We are members of ‘Octagon’ a global alliance with fellow architects the Oval Partnership working across the UK, South East Asia, China and Africa. This alliance shares sustainable knowledge and design expertise in renewable resources and local technologies with offices in London, Liverpool, Hong Kong and Beijing.
