History

We are a stable and long-established practice with a pedigree of designing buildings which extends from the reign of Willam IV. A history of the practice's work is given in "A Somerset Architect's Practice in the 19th and 20th centuries"by H.A. Derek Gibson OBE.

 

A major exibition celebrating the work of the practice was held in the historic setting of St. Mary's Church, Bridgwater in 2007.

Our Ethos and Approach

We strive to achieve a continually improving architectural quality in the design of our buildings based on their historical and physical context, functionality, energy conservation and sustainability. The awareness of thoughtful detailing is also fundamental to the design of our buildings.

 
We find that physical restrictions and financial restraints impose the opportunity for resourcefulness and creative solutions, believing that problem solving depends upon a balance between discipline and imagination.
 
Our approach to the design process moves a project forward together with the continual participation of users and a sustained consultation with all parties concerned in the realisation of the project. Fundamental to this is budgetary and programme control, whilst achieving best value.

We have a team of friendly, highly qualified and professional staff who provide a wealth of expertise and experience in a spectrum of disciplines.
