We are housemakers, creating distinct, beautifully crafted architecture, in the town, the countryside, in the UK and overseas. We love what we do; delighting in the detail, the use of light and materials, the sensory, the tactile, and the making of spaces that age with grace.
We are driven by working together and with you. For us, the process is a dialogue. We listen, earn trust, foster friendships. We ourselves are a family, and are mindful that creating a home is a journey, a life experience. We are always careful to understand the way you live and what you enjoy. This is the key to designing a home that is truly yours.
As architects, we are rigorous and determined throughout every stage of the project. We have vast experience, a proven track record, and our architecture speaks for itself. Each of our buildings has a sense of belonging. Each one is a place to call home.
Nestled into a hillside, this timber-framed family home enjoys uninterrupted views out across the countryside of the North Downs. A newly built property, it is an elegant fusion of traditional crafts and materials with contemporary design.

Situated in the far corner of a mews, our brief for this project was to create a contemporary family home. To respect the existing architecture of the mews, we designed a home that has a more traditional feel on the outside, with bricks and sash windows, but which has a distinctively modern feel inside.
