From Our Website

We have long experience with working on domestic projects in London, Sussex and the South East. We work on extensions, alterations, refurbishment and new builds, in any combination. All domestic projects are different, because all clients and all sites and buildings are different. There are no stock solutions. It is crucial that the architect and client find the best possible way to accommodate the present and future pattern of life and enjoyment in your home.


We specialise in getting the most out of properties with inventive use of space and a thorough knowledge of Planning Policy and other restrictions. Our appraisal service prioritises the value of a site that you own or are considering for purchase. Our input provides a vital tool in informing your investment decision and helping you manage risk and control costs. We start with your initial brief from which we make our own detailed assessment of the site. If it is evident there are good reasons to consider further then we can provide fuller information in an Appraisal Report.


In addition to his work in practice Simon has been a design enabler for public arts projects in Kent and Sussex. He has been a consultant to the Building Research Establishment delivering low energy building design workshops. He has taught post graduate architectural design at the University of Kent and has acted as brief writer and assessor for RIBA Competitions. Jaimie has previously taught design, and technical studies at the Bartlett UCL and the Architectural Association School of Architecture.
