“It's our freshness and creative energy - combined with our strength and experience across all sectors - that gives us our edge.” Benedict Zucchi, chair of architecture
Our architects are passionate about the role of design to improve the quality of life. We design places for all of life's activities and at every scale.
We are united by the simple idea that people are at the heart of the design process. We design across all the major sectors and our specialist skills include Sustainability, Urban Design, Heritage and Creative re-use. We are recognised as international leaders in each. Our open plan design studios are creative hubs where we work in an interdisciplinary environment which stimulates cross discipline and cross sector thinking.
