HERITAGE & CONSERVATION

Our heritage architects, ensure that every project with a conservation or heritage need is appropriately imagined and designed for both the clients needs and for the safeguarding of the heritage asset.

SUSTAINABILITY

Led by our Passivhaus architect, we are committed to incorporating sustainable design into every project, whether a new build or existing project, as a key driver or as a result of careful capital cost free thinking that improves buildings for the users and owners.

ACCESSIBILITY & INCLUSIVE DESIGN

We believe that buildings should be accessible and well-designed for everybody, and we are champions in ensuring that this is a key design driver on every project.

OUR STORY

The Practice was established by the current Chairman, David Cowan, in 1983 and is based in East Grinstead, West Sussex. Whilst we predominantly serve the South East and Home Counties, our Architectural work covers the whole of the UK and Ireland. We have significant experience across many sectors, including developer residential, healthcare, home-owner residential, conservation, commercial, education, sports and leisure.

A proven track record for residential and healthcare work has resulted in an additional speciality, with the practice being recognised as one of the leading architectural firms for inclusive design. A product of this reputation is that 6 of our Architects now act as Expert Witnesses on disability needs in High Court cases.
