The practice seeks to be intellectual, technical, practical, innovative, and even entrepreneurial. nevertheless, it aims to provide a professional rather than a contractural service. We take the traditional view that to be professional means attending to clients' requirements beyond the constraints of a contract.

In our work we seek to balance the opposites of civic cohesion and individuality and tend to be attracted by public projects such as those in the area of education, housing and community regeneration and look to well researched., focused and imaginative solutions

The practice strives to satisfy and resolve the scientific, artistic and social aspects of architecture. we relish complex projects which embrace technology, but search beyond the mechanistic and utilitarian to engage science in a cultural and social context, and which we attempt to reflect as architecture.
