At St.Ann's Gate Architects we see no distinction between creativity in design, and in the skills necessary for conservation projects. We seek to understand our clients - the things that make them and their places unique - and to respond in sensitive and creative ways.
We design through dialogue. We do not impose an architectural style or a dogma onto the buildings within our care. We collaborate with our clients, to try to work 'with the grain' of the building or site, identifying solutions which are inspirational, sustainable and appropriate.
As architects we will not only work in teamwork with our clients, but we will try to build consensus through the approvals process, liaising with other stakeholders such as co-funders, planning authorities and statutory consultees. We also enjoy working closely with other design and construction professionals, seeking to orchestrate a positive process through to a successful outcome.
