Award-winning architecture and interior design 

Over the last 32 years we have built a world class reputation in the hospitality sector. Even though we love them, we don’t just design hotels. Our work includes projects in other areas where a hospitality mindset is a bonus, from cutting-edge build-to-rent and student schemes to flexible co-working spaces. 

Whatever the project, we bring the same combination of design, commercial knowhow and human understanding to everything we do. 

Our values

Everywhere is an idea

Every project is different and presents unique challenges, which is why we have don’t have a rigid house style. Instead, we get under the skin of each assignment to produce beautiful buildings and spaces that connect with their environment and the people that use them.

In touch with commercial reality

Our architects and interior designers consider every interaction and experience. We never stop thinking about the needs of the end user and use every bit of space to enhance the commercial value of a project. 

Our work is precious, our attitude isn’t

People assume behind every big idea is a big head, but it doesn’t have to be this way. We believe great architecture and interior design is the product of grand ideas not grandiose egos. We believe in the creativity of collaboration and value everyone’s contribution. We think this makes us easy to work with, after all many of our clients have been with us for a long time.

Working
sustainably

How we do it

Architects and interior designers have an important role to play in reducing the impact of the built environment on our climate. 

We are committed to greater sustainability, both within our own studio, and also when working with clients.

We are a signatories to the UK Architects Declare Climate and Biodiversity Emergency initiative and a technical partner in the Energy & Environment Alliance, which is developing the first universal sustainability standard for the hospitality industry.  

We are also researching how we can use the Passive House standard to reduce energy use in our projects. 

Designing
inclusively 

How we do it

Our culture promotes responsibility and innovation at all levels: our aim is for everyone to feel they can make a difference whatever their background, beliefs, gender or sexual orientation. We believe it’s not just the right thing to do, but having a workforce that brings a diverse range of perspectives and experience is also good for our business.  

Our Inclusion and Diversity Strategy has been developed by a range of people across the studio, from students to senior management. Our aim is to encourage equality and promote knowledge, understanding and tolerance. 

To support diversity, we use a blind recruitment process for all CVs from agencies where details of candidates age, gender and ethnic background are removed.

As well as getting our own house in order we are passionate about making the buildings and spaces we design for others as inclusive as possible.

Thinking
globally

How we do it

Like our clients, we think global.  From our London office we deliver projects across Europe, Africa and the Middle East, and even further sometimes.  Working with trusted local partners we give our clients a connected service across borders, combining our architectural and interior design solutions with local knowledge of planning conditions and building regulations.

Our latest annual

Our annual showcases our projects, people, ideas and other news. It gives us a chance to reflect…and connect, and share some of the things we are proud of achieving for our clients.
