We have a dedicated 'in house' design department, who are multi-disciplined, knowledgeable and experienced. An integrated design team throughout any project is advantageous (and cost effective), but we are also happy to work with external architects and designers. Our designers are available throughout each project - not only to the client but also to our (wonderful) builders and project managers, enabling us all to benefit from a combined experience.
We work with both hand drawn concept sketches and sophisticated CAD technology - producing a comprehensive array of planning drawings, construction drawings, technical/engineering notes, survey plans, and Building Regulation drawings.
Our design ethos is client and location lead. We trust in vernacular scale, detail and proportion, with both traditional and contemporary interpretations. We hope our buildings possess longevity; mellowing with age and becoming stronger with passing seasons. To this end we specify the finest natural materials, including green oak that is FSC® and PEFC certified.
We hope to avoid architectural gimmicks and passing fads.
