Perhaps the biggest obstacle to actualising any change to a heritage building is achieving a successful planning consent. The planners and conservation officers will want to see proper analysis of the buildings history and its significance is carried out and that the highest quality design and specification of any alterations, additions or new buildings addresses this, fully demonstrating that the heritage asset is preserved and enhanced.
BESPOKE DESIGN SOLUTION
Each heritage building is unique. These buildings are by their nature implicitly of a different era, and as a result can restrict 21st century lifestyles.
We take pride in achieving distinctive designs of outstanding quality that enhance and add value to homes, businesses and developments.

Our approach to each project, big or small, starts from the same position; objectivity, respect, care and attention. In our work we seek to empower progress through a collaborative approach with our clients. We strive to exceed expectations of the value great architecture can bring to a project.
Whether for a new build one-off house, multiple unit mixed use buildings, or for creating striking contemporary interventions to heritage and Grade Listed buildings, our expertise lies in merging innovative contemporary architecture with high performing energy efficient building techniques and sympathetic restoration to bring you a building which is greater than the sum of its parts.
