We relish the opportunity to work within historic settings, either by restoring existing buildings or introducing new structures. Every project is different, but we always seek to tap into what is special about a place or a space, and to add to a pre-existing narrative rather than jarring difference for its’ own sake.

This sometimes means extensive historical and archaeological analysis and recording, often working with specialists in the field. We often draw on historic, vernacular forms and materials, but combine them with contemporary space and placemaking.

We believe in enduring buildings with a long design life, capable of making a positive contribution to their setting for many generations.
