“ ...From our first discussions and throughout the development of the project, you have been consistent in working towards bringing into reality an accessible, appropriate and dignified space....I very much appreciate your generous assistance and all your patient management of the work. For me, it has been an exciting, though at times nerve-wracking project, which in the end has proved to be very much worth working for... ”
Fr. Christopher Heaps - Parish Priest, Battersea
Creativity, conservation and sustainability are fundamental to our way of thinking. Creativity must be sustainable. Conservation is inherently sustainable but must be creative too, if a viable future is to be found for the past. New buildings or old both need to find a sustainable place within their individual contexts. Each is unique. Each is dependent upon a creative spark to ensure its vitality.
Our enthusiasms are for appropriate design solutions, be they for new work within historic environments or high quality architectural conservation. A sustainable approach to the creative use or re-use of buildings is the practice’s ambition and we strive to foster a respect for ancient fabric while allowing the buildings within our care to respond to today’s needs, developing if necessary and as appropriate.
