Please describe a recently completed project or tell us about the bespoke service that you offer

"We are specialists in designing elegant yet creative and bespoke solutions, which have a cohesive approach to architecture and interior design. We celebrate the architecture of a space and allow it to form a backdrop for the interior design elements.

We are experts in working with heritage properties - including obtaining listed building consent, planning permission, building control certificates and licences to alter very complex historical properties. We pride ourselves in responding very specifically to the needs of our clients and their properties.

We can deliver a complete and consistent set of services, from the initial architectural design work to delivering and handing over a property ready to be lived in. Our versatile set of design skills and seamless design approach helps to blend old and new, and make a property feel lived in from the day the project is handed over."
