Architecture for Community
People are at the heart of communities, and the places we create bring those people together. Our award winning projects are for relaxing, for worship, for training, for connecting with like-minded people. They respond to place, culture and the environment, to shape neighbourhoods.
Town Centre Regeneration
The future of our high streets and town centres depends on a lively mix of uses, in characterful spaces. Working with existing buildings or creating new spaces, we have the experience to deliver exciting spaces for retail and food offers - which draw people in, make places to meet and bring people into our town centres.
Unlocking a site of natural beauty or inviting people into a new experience, our buildings welcome visitors and let the attractions do the talking, amplifying messages and highlighting experiences. We work closely with our clients to help build the identity of places, communicating ideas directly, and providing flexible, sustainable spaces that will grow with the attraction.
A pop up or festival can convey a message simply and powerfully. Our teams apply their architectural experience to social and environmental issues they feel passionate about, delivering creative and engaging places that draw people in.
Places for reflection and worship have long histories and hold meaning and memory. Our work with religious communities and their estates respects this. The renovated or new buildings are spaces that will serve them for future generations, enabling them to grow and add to their stories.
Whether participating in them or watching them, sport brings people together. Whatever the activity, places for sport are specialised facilities that can quickly become the heart of a community. As designers, we approach them from both a practical and emotional point of view, to make places that are robust, elegant and a pleasure to be in.
