We have experience in Conservation, Heritage, AONB and Community Engagement. Liz is a RIBA conservation registrant and has recently completed an MSt in Building History at Cambridge University. We sit on the advisory panels for two conservation areas.
Sustainability informs all our projects and is the primary driver for a number of these; specifically the Betteshanger Sustainable Parks visitor centre incorporating the Kent Mining Museum that tells the story of the UK’s on-going transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy (completed 2021). Our new HQ for Canterbury City Council which facilitates a shift to new hybrid agile working practices and aspires to be an exemplar of environmental sustainability reflecting the council's commitment to Net-Zero Carbon.
We provide a full range of RIBA professional architectural services and in addition offer 3D Exhibition Design, Museum / Heritage Interpretation (specifically Digital AR and App development) and Graphic Design. We have developed an expertise in early stage Responsive Concept Ideation which in many cases has lead to successful funding applications (NLHF, LUF, CCC, RGF).
Since establishing the practice, our work has involved telling stories and developing narratives, which we make explicit through our work, be it a small installation, large scale architecture or City-wide Interventions. What interests us is engaging with communities, establishing how best to show-case their stories and to make these accessible.
