ABOUT US

Creativity springs from within like a fresh, clear, mountain spring welling-up from the very earth. It is precious yet we possess it in abundance. But for creativity it to be useful, it must be channelled and controlled.

It is the research and understanding of our clients needs, within the context of site, culture, and history that shapes and directs the channels through which our creativity flows.

If the creativity reaches fertile ground, lush and beautiful gardens will grow. Those gardens, in the form of buildings, interiors, and furniture, will become the delight of our clients and all who walk and rest with them.

Where presented with fertile ground, we see our task as to irrigate it, and tend what grows until it is mature and productive.

In this sense, we are simple gardeners trying to grow what our clients desire.

WHAT WE DO

A CONTEMPORARY APPROACH TO HERITAGE AND CONSERVATION

The value of excellent architecture and interior design, irrespective of style or period, is part of our shared cultural heritage. Although we are designers of contemporary architecture and interiors, when called upon to work with architecture of historic interest we are always delighted.

We have a great deal of experience in working on listed buildings, in conservation areas, and in other heritage situations. From the grade I listed Victoria and Albert Museum in London, to more humble grade 2 terrace houses, our approach is essentially the same. That is to restore what should be restored of the original building in a scholarly way, but where a new intervention is required, it should be clear and contemporary in its style. It should be respectful of the original and usually subservient to it, though not always. A new intervention within historic building fabric should usually be reversible without damaging the original.

In conservation areas we favour contemporary designs that are able to sit comfortably along side the older built fabric. The new building must be able to add to the character and appearance of the conservation area and may well acknowledge some of its defining characteristics. It is our belief that a new building should seldom seek to copy an historical building.

We consider that imitating the design of older buildings is a cultural cul-de-sac and is more often than not disrespectful of the original, and the people that created it. That devalues the cultural currency for everybody.
