We are a family run practice led by partners Gavin Watts and Ashley Taylor. Our passion is to create user focused crafted buildings for people influenced by scandinavian lifestyle and design principles.

Our studio is based in Manchester with our work taking us across the UK. We have vast experience, a proven track record with each of our buildings focused around a strong sense of belonging . Each one is a place to call home.

Gavin and Ashley are wonderful, I really enjoyed meeting them and feel that if and when we do press ahead with the project, we’ll be in great hands. They seem very adaptable, happy to work to our budget and genuinely fill me with confidence.

Gavin [his studio] have come up with a design and vision that perfectly reflects the spirit and energy in the town. Delivering on this will give us a ground that will be embedded in the heart of this vibrant community for many years to come.”
