Our philosophy

“ This is such a wonderful scheme which has been excellently executed and the members were very impressed not only by the quality of the works themselves but also by the attention to detail and quality of finish which those responsible for creating the scheme had insisted upon and our congratulations go to the Parish for a truly inspiring result... ”

Diocesan Advisory Committee Report for Odiham Church

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.
