Founded in 2008 we have over 10 years of experience working mainly in and around London as well as occasionally further afield.

Our aim is to create building which are rich and expressive, but also unpretentious and practical with a sense of authenticity. We have a hands on approach to designing and constructing buildings. We often try to express structure and we are interested in using materials to express rather than hide craftsmanship.

We have a list of like-minded collaborators and contractors we work with and can recommend. We are typically involved throughout the design and construction process but can work flexibly alongside clients and others to deliver projects. We always try to design in a cost effective and environmentally responsible manner for the long-term benefit of our clients.
