The practice was set up in 2013 with an aim to develop responsive architecture, through a close understanding of client users, their lifestyle and needs. Tom took a conscious decision to set up the practice to move away from highly commercially-driven briefs and contractor-led material selection and agendas. Tom’s own objectives for the practice are to spend time with clients and develop professional, lasting relationships to ensure that, together they are able to deliver new spaces tailor-made for their use. Straightforward and efficient solutions constructed with quality raw materials, simply combined, ensure that elegant proposals are possible for all budgets. Reducing energy use is a passion of the practice and always a key consideration while designing. Innovative or integrated storage is taken into consideration during the design and briefing to ensure buildings will work for their users, belongings and activities. Bespoke furniture or storage solutions can be included as part of the design service.
