We help guide our clients through their projects, acting as a partner who can unlock the potential of the site, whether it’s a blank canvas or an existing building.

Our clients choose us because we are reliable and diligent and create designs that exceed their expectations. We work transparently with a focus on making the most out of your brief and budget, working closely with you to define the key objectives of your project and the most important elements to develop.

We have developed our expertise over many years on a range project types and scales; from extensions and refurbishments, dealing with listed buildings and in conservation areas as well as unlocking more complex infill sites. We work in the housing, public and educational sectors.

At the heart of everything we do is sustainability. We make buildings that are fundamentally sustainable, energy efficient and low in embodied carbon (the energy used in the build). We have built up a knowledge of the challenges and solutions to making existing buildings more efficient and sourcing materials and products which are high in design quality and good for planet earth.

We value: design quality, the planet and our client’s experience - from project inception through to completion.

Loft and Kitchen


Had a great chat with James who gave me some great advice on how to proceed with our project.

I have worked closely with James…. he has designed an unconventional private house extension for me to a tight budget which is about to start on site. I have always found him to be well-organised, efficient, professional and highly responsive to a client brief, and a pleasure to work with. But more than this, he has an ability and willingness to find beautiful and affordable solutions to design challenges, to think round issues inventively and nimbly especially with challenging budgets.

We are delighted with the work James has completed. The house has been extended with a new feature stair, skylights and a light filled extension to our kitchen. The contemporary design blends wonderfully with the original features of the house.
