Architecture and Interior design

Project sizes vary from smaller home extensions to large new-build residences. When working with traditional properties we enjoy the challenge of integrating modern services and standards of living into the existing setting and making the best use of your space. We understand the demands expected of a home for both comfort and efficiency and try to make this our priority, without compromising on high quality design.

Project Management

We are able to undertake project management including the analysis of tender prices, reporting on construction budgets, site visits and reports. We oversee projects in both the UK and abroad.
