Philosophy


PLACE – We believe in quality, collaborative and intelligent design, grounded in P.L.A.C.E; Planning | Landscape | Architecture | Conservation | Engineering. We seek to front-load design development and increase local public engagement.

FORM – We believe in simple and elegant forms which respond to the brief and context of a site. We seek to stretch the imagination of clients and deliver interesting, innovative and creative designs.

FUTURE – We create living architecture to build existing and future communities, to create better connections, to increase quality of life and make better places for people to live. We create architecture which is sustainable and looks great, using quality detailing to support longevity, laying the foundations for a low-carbon future, future heritage and legacy.

SCALE – We are focused on designing for the human scale, for human interpretation, interaction and experience.

Prova Zaman 

Prova has enjoyed completing Master of Architecture in Liverpool, and now in her free time enjoys delving into drawing, photography and travelling. Having lived in three continents, she believes architecture is more than design, it's about people.

Architecture is dynamic and fluid. It's about taking an interest in people, in every aspect - whether that maybe knowing about current affairs or talking to strangers from a different background to yours. It's all enriching experiences that lead to a better understanding of people, and ultimately better design.
