Benefit from our strong reputation for

 housing design on residential-led


We add value through design.

Listening to your needs and aspirations, we will deliver design excellence that fits comfortably within your brief. Our design-led approach will provide you with a high-end development whatever your sector and an easy product to sell.

We achieve success on wide-ranging sites.

Maximising the value of your investment often comes from pushing boundaries. We have experience in delivering high quality schemes on constrained sites. This includes projects on rural exception sites, Community Land Trusts (CLTs), locations with challenging constraints such as green belt or floodplain, change of use including prior notification and high-density urban developments as well as expertise in handling conservation areas and listed buildings.

We promote strong relationships.

Through effective communication with local planning authorities we maintain a high success rate in all our architectural designs, independently or as part of your design team. Our professional architects have years of experience with planning authorities, particularly in Greater Cambridgeshire (Cambridge City and South Cambs), East Cambs, Huntingdonshire, Fenland, King's Lynn and West Norfolk and West Suffolk areas.

Working closely with you on public engagement at all stages, we develop an in-depth understanding of context, history and culture. This enables us to create architectural solutions that are approved by planning authorities and supported by local communities.

We optimise the space available.

Each site you propose for development is unique. We provide creative solutions that capitalise on existing features and minimise the effect of site constraints, such as Tree Preservation Orders, Flood Risk Zones or inclusion in a Conservation Area. We will expand the value of your property development by maximising unit numbers and floor area with sensitivity to good design principles.

We understand the build process.

The design we create will be practical to build. With unrivalled expertise in producing building-regulation-compliant construction drawings, NBS specifications, and negotiated or formal tenders, our technical capabilities ensure the best possible package for a scheme that is on time and on budget. We promote cost-effectiveness to maximise your gross development value, delivering a quick turn around on your investment.

We employ a well-structured process.

Our clear step-by-step progression from initial concept through to project completion combines creativity with technical knowledge to achieve your ideal solution. We can offer a complete design and planning service, or you can engage us at any individual stage of your development.
