We are a small architectural practice, based in South West London, which operates within an informal and open office. We work predominantly on residential projects in the Central and Greater London areas for a variety of private clients, designing and managing them from their inception through to completion.

We are a hierarchy free enterprise where everyone has a voice and is encouraged to contribute towards the creative output of the firm. The atmosphere within the firm is both light-hearted and buzzy, and where no one is allowed to take themselves too seriously. The quality of the work we produce is the only thing we allow ourselves to take seriously. In terms of age, gender and nationality we are broadly mixed and we firmly believe that this helps us to keep a sense of balance in all that we do.
