Architecture for living
We have extensive experience of creating new communities through masterplanning and designing residential schemes. The Stirling Prize-winning Accordia is widely regarded as setting new standards for UK housing. Our homes respond to different patterns of living, and provide intimacy, privacy and security whilst forging a sense of community.
From residential masterplans and affordable housing to student housing, build to rent and homes for later life: we make homes for people.
Jason Cornish is our residential lead.
We create places that knit into their neighbourhoods and encourage interaction, buildings that are efficient, well built and will last a lifetime (or more).
Accordia marked a shift in British housing, sending a message that good housing matters

Whether it is housing for social rent, shared ownership or affordable sales, we work with housing associations, councils and developers to create homes that are beautiful, accessible and people are proud to call home.
More than just a place to sleep, student housing can play a huge social role in the student experience. Our recent projects have delivered well-designed rooms with access to high-quality shared amenities, and value for money for universities and providers.
Build to rent
The private rented sector addresses contemporary urban housing issues by providing quality homes, with amenities available to residents.
A bed for the night or a home from home. We work with existing buildings and new build to make efficient spaces that bring comfort and delight to travellers.
Homes for later life
In later life, our requirements may change, so we make extra care housing, sheltered housing and retirement homes that are accessible, sustainable and are designed to help bring people together.
