We are a family of built environment experts.
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
We focus on the needs of individuals and use design to improve their emotional wellbeing and surroundings. This simple philosophy informs all our work.
Our responsibility is to interpret the aspirations of those who commission us – and those who inhabit the places we design – in a way that responds directly to need. Each project is unique and our approach is always to seek bespoke solutions.
These solutions are the product of analysis of physical context and close engagement with our clients. We consider time spent developing a real understanding of requirements at the initial stages of a project as invaluable. It forms the basis for creating clear, simple and appropriate design solutions.
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.
