Our design philosophy allows an intuitive and imaginative approach to design coupled with experience and analytical skills under the direct control of the principal and Chartered Architect – Gavin Sargent; creating buildings which are sympathetic to their environment and in their design contain the grain and essence of their surroundings. Architecture that draws from its setting, so that on completion it has a clear feeling of belonging, whilst performing its required function.
