Co-directors Phil Waind and Sonya Gohil set the tone with their passion for appropriate, contemporary architecture. Their experience, gained over 30 years of running large scale projects in commercial practice, is blended with an expanding team of highly motivated and talented architectural staff.
We believe: in the architect's traditional role as design leader and co-ordinator.
in teams with the project director leading throughout, from brief to completion. This ensures consistency and full accountability.
each project regularly in an open 'crit' format to ensure that the design strategy is followed and continually interrogated. Any changes are then fully understood by the whole team.
working closely with clients, consultants and users and we encourage active feedback and the sharing of ideas.
