Although our experience of designing for the housing sector
extends back to the beginning of the practice in 1900 our current
portfolio has its origins around 2000 since when the Practice has
been involved in proposals for over 18,000 units of residential
Our design objectives have always been to produce welcoming,
comfortable and secure living environments which give a sense of
place and belonging to the individual, families and the wider
community and provide a foundation on which to build sustainable
communities. They are based on a clear understanding of the need to
successfully integrate good design from within the home, inside and
out, through to the public realm beyond.
Working with both public and private sector clients our housing
projects include large scale regeneration, infill sites, mixed use
and tenure, care and extra care, and single living accommodation.
We have provided a wide range of services including feasibility
studies, masterplanning, resident and community engagement,
compliance audits and construction design.
We believe housing is often the critical component in regeneration
and by capitalising on our extensive reach into other sectors, not
only does it enrich our approach to housing design but also offers
the potential to unlock new opportunities particularly through
"wider generation" thinking and combining assets across the
sectors, and public and private clients.
