25Years_0

THE STORY SO FAR

We started up in 1991 young, keen architects, full of ideas and hoping that we’d be given a chance to realise our potential. A lot has happened in 25 years. Not only have we designed and delivered a wide range of buildings both in the UK and overseas, we’ve worked with some great people and had a great time doing it.

FOUNDING DIRECTORS AND ASSOCIATES

MY, HOW WE’VE GROWN… We started with 16, and now we are 95… We’ve moved from Lower Regent Street to Saville Row to James Street, branching out into Kent in 2007…

We used to use boards, pens and pantone…. Now it’s Revit, BIM, and Rhino (How did we ever get by before?) Then it was suits and ties, shoulder pads, big hair… Now it’s informal, comfortable attire but with rather less hair….

WE’VE ACHIEVED MUCH TO BE PROUD OF…. And worked for a wide range of clients…. Some have been particularly supportive….

AND NEWLON HAVE FOR 10 YEARS TOO
MARTIN PERRY HAS SUPPORTED US FOR 18 YEARS
KEN BATES HELPED US GET STARTED

We’ve won some awards…. And found working overseas rewarding in a different way…. Very occasionally we’ve met Royalty….

OUR PEOPLE ARE OUR GREATEST ASSET…. We’ve looked after each other, and helped train a new generation…. And employed people from all over the world… even Wales!

LOOKING FORWARD
So here we are, 25 years on, still loving it, still dreaming, still grafting and still punching above our weight. We hope the next 25 years are as good as the first – if not it won’t be for want of trying……
