Architectural design forms the backbone of the practice. We design and deliver considered, contextual architectural responses that are routed in sustainability, local stories, materials and craftsmanship. Planting and landscape is a critical element of any architectural proposal, whether inside or out, and this is an integral part of our designs.
We regularly deliver landscape projects at varying scales and budgets. We are currently working on a scheme for Tower Hamlets Local Authority in London, where we have delivered a feasibility highlighting sites along Bethnal Green Road for urban realm improvements and greening strategies to include the addition of pocket parks, meadows, tree planting, planters, cycle and water fountain amenities etc. We have recently been commissioned by Newham Council to deliver the renovation of Manor Park Library and the surrounding urban design, landscape and artworks to public spaces.
We see the holistic design of both the landscape and architectural scheme as important and regularly deliver both services in house. This allows us to deliver projects in which the relationship and interaction between inside and out is unified and harmonious, allowing for a high level of connectivity between nature and architecture.
We regularly work on highly layered urban projects in which we are involved in multiple capacities; from a strategic level, through the delivery of a landscape and architectural scheme, to the branding and identity of places and the ongoing cultural programming of spaces to ensure that they are actively used and contribute positively to communities.
Our interests lie at the intersection of architecture, landscape, craftsmanship and environmental design, typically converging in landscape and public realm projects. Our projects contribute to public life, combining high levels of amenity with ecological sustainability with the design of parks, gardens and streets, to rooftops, furniture, and architectural structures.
We are regularly commissioned to complete research to shape a client’s business case, masterplan or architectural scheme. A number of these research pieces have developed beyond the original scope, taken to publication as standalone works in their own right.
