Practice & People

We positively enjoy the team nature of our practice. The scale of our studio allows us to bring energy and enthusiasm, personal commitment and a lightness of touch to each project, with both directors remaining closely involved with all projects, and regular studio-wide discussions informing progress.

In addition to our responsibility to the clients and the eventual users of the spaces we design, we take seriously our responsibility to run a practice in which all of us can thrive, continue to learn and enjoy a supportive and creative environment. We are equal opportunity employers and have been able to accommodate flexible working patterns.

Sustainability and resilience are of paramount importance to how we run the practice, informing the kind of work we do and how projects are developed and delivered. Excellent communication is a priority for us, both within the studio and between ourselves, clients and collaborators.
