vision

It’s not about us, it’s about you. We design buildings that simply connect people to place. From houses hinged around a garden, to workplaces where play is pivotal, each is considered in its context. We distil a site to its essence, crafting materials, form and spaces to meaningfully relate. Spaces that are rigorous, responsive and resonant. Because architecture is for life.

“We design both for how a space makes you feel, and for how it works. Every site, no matter where it is, offers opportunities to make a building that lifts the spirit, and works for the people who live there. Finding those unique opportunities is what drives us as architects.”

Ben’s approach to architecture is shaped by a love of nature and a curiosity about cities, as well as the similarities and differences between the two. Ben is an invited guest lecturer and critic at professional forums and schools of architecture.

Underpinning Simon’s approach is the relationship between climate and landscape as the defining elements in how a structure is conceived and designed. This applies to both commerce projects and bespoke housing.

“What’s really important, apart from rigorous design, are the connections between inside and out, and how we use materials. Whether you’re designing a coastal house, a country residence or a city home, the same broad principles apply, it’s just that different climates and sites will invite different responses.”
