Our Placemakers

Making places. Why does it matter so much?

As our society evolves, the pressures of population growth, immigration, resources, environmental concern and physical and mental wellbeing bring the issue of housing into ever sharper focus. As residential architects, we believe passionately that providing well-planned and constructed housing, in thoughtfully designed neighbourhoods, is a fundamental duty of society. we are proud to play our part in helping to fulfil this duty.
