We are design-led, bringing an innovative, rigorous and experiential approach to every project.
Our solutions are always specific to the client, brief and site; we will design and deliver the best possible outcome for all three. Every project, every scheme, every masterplan we create is a unique response to the community and environment in which it is set, a creative solution that is at once new and perfectly fitting. In all our work, sustainability is key. For us, it’s not a buzz word, it’s a core principle.
As a practice, we are passionate about housing — from the performance and spatial quality of individual housing typologies, through the experience and qualities of large urban buildings, and the comprehensive masterplanning of new suburban settlements and the regeneration of urban areas. Simply put, we love creating homes. Homes that are embedded in the public space that surrounds them, that respond to and elevate the place where they are built. We consult, engage and design schemes with community at their heart, places where people want to live, work and play.
Our rigorous commercial approach to high quality design is driven by Jo Cowen’s background in architecture and investment management. We are known for our ability to maximise the value of a site whilst still maintaining a focus on cutting-edge design, always with an eye to longevity and enhancing the urban environment. We drive density and efficiency in our design and construction and we ensure value for money through build-able architecture that is carefully crafted, detailed and designed for real people.
