About

We are a family of built environment experts.

Who are we?

Culture

We are employee-owned, so everybody has a say in what we do and how we work.

Research and Innovation Hub

A place to develop noteworthy research projects.

We love exploring new ideas and are open to proposals from consultants, clients, research organisations and universities about new initiatives. If you fall in this category and have an idea, please do get in touch.

We are currently focusing on five main threads;

Evidence based BIM | Sustainability | Design Research | Usability | Collaboration

Design Approach

Good architecture can transform lives and rejuvenate places.

Our architecture is not about pre-determined style or fashion: we strive to create spaces and places that people love to use.

We design buildings which sit comfortably in their surroundings, but also inspire and excite. We find simple solutions, but achieve an elegance derived from thorough analysis and good ideas.

We explore innovative construction techniques to improve build quality and performance but carefully manage our clients’ risk. We design pragmatically to optimise sustainability.

Sustainability

We are committed to sustainability and responding to environmental issues across all aspects of our work.

This means seeking ways to limit any potentially negative environmental impact that we may have in terms of carbon emissions, pollution, resources, waste or ecology. At the same time, we are actively exploring opportunities to have a positive impact; through re-use, regeneration, using sustainable forms of energy and promoting community, wellbeing, sustainable travel, biodiversity, beauty and delight.

We like to lead by example and are proud of our carbon neutral Cardiff office and our many in-house sustainability initiatives, which include Business Green Weeks, staff allotments and company beehives.
