We start all our work by listening very carefully to our client’s needs and aspirations. By exploring, testing and discussing opening ideas we can help to refine the brief and ensure that everyone is agreed on direction. As well as crafting the functional and aesthetic environment for users, our work is inspired by the wider context of the site and community. Responding carefully and creatively to ‘Spirit of Place’ is a fundamental objective. Even in unremarkable settings and within tight budget limits we aim to design buildings and places which help lift spirits for both users and community.
