Eco Tourism

There is a growing industry based around the desire to escape our busy lives and spend leisure time in the Great Outdoors; whether it be a unique stay in a woodland cabin or luxury retreat holiday.

There are opportunities to create sensitive, sustainable buildings and businesses on rural sites; such as country pubs, farms that are looking to diversify or properties in areas of outstanding natural beauty.

The design process starts with establishing an understanding of your business and its ethos. Perhaps this project marks the start of a new venture?

As architects we work together with you to bring your visions to life. We blend the natural landscape with a new constructed landscape that is particular to your concept.

We can guide you through every stage of the design and delivery process – See our Services

Education

We are passionate about creating inspirational education environments. The spaces we learn in have a huge impact on our development, confidence and success in life.

We believe these spaces can take many forms, not just the traditional classroom. Learning spaces can be sheltered outdoor break-out zones or stand-alone pods for nature studies, arts and crafts.

The design process for school projects begins with detailed analysis and consultation. This research often identifies that simple changes can transform the efficiency of what already exists. Outdoor learning buildings may be within protected countryside, and so are designed to be sympathetic to the surrounding ecology.

We like to ground a project in its local context by using local materials and labour. This strengthens its sustainability and will help to unite you and your project into your community.

We provide professional services from inception to completion and are experienced in working with large Client groups – See our Services

Residential

Our homes can do a great deal more for us than provide the latest kitchen appliances. With careful consideration your house can be personalised to reflect your interests and enhance your senses.

Transformation can happen at any scale, whether you are refurbishing a Victorian terrace or extending a semi-detached house. We start the design process by learning about you and how you like to live.

The most cost-efficient way to build is to build new. We design homes to blend with the environment and use sustainable technologies to reduce your project’s carbon footprint. On rural plots, the form of the land, the trees and views all play a part in shaping the building to look like it belongs. On urban and suburban sites the urban grain is the landscape. We pick out trees and views in just the same way and develop spaces that put you closer to nature.


House extensions generate new edges between the house and the garden; in-between spaces that are open in summer and sheltered in winter, with good natural light and a connection to nature.
