We are an innovative and creative practice, providing specialised and bespoke design services that are entirely focused on our Client's needs.

Our engagement is proactive, responsive and friendly.

Our projects cover a range of building and urban intervention types like the Thames Tideway Project and always respond to the specific characteristics of site and context, with the careful use of material, spatial clarity and understanding of environmental conditions.

Our hands on and practical approach to all we do results in design solutions that inspire and stimulate whilst providing functional success and certainty

We continuously review and enhance the quality and relevance of our consultancy and bring both prescriptive integrity and high quality design to every project.

We always monitor and implement strict health and safety procedures within the design process and strive to offer sustainable and environmentally responsible solutions.

With both partners having previously worked for some of London's notable architectural designers such as Norman Foster, Michael Hopkins and Lifschutz Davidson, the driving force of the practice was a clear focus on design quality and on providing a complete and integrated service to Clients, the design team and to wider project stakeholders.
