  • Office and administration buildings.
  • Hotels and leisure facilities.
  • Educational buildings.

We have developed a particular expertise in combining the best of local materials, traditions, craftmanship and techniques with the latest appropriate technology and modern international design requirements. We find that this is beneficial economically, socially, environmentally and functionally.

“Where resources are scarce, necessity dictates lean use of materials. The marriage of natural and industrial materials results in an elegant simplicity, which could be more widely emulated in sustainable design.”

Especially in our work in developing countries, we consider it particularly important to cause minimum damaging impact on the host environment. Our approach takes full account of such issues as long-term sustainability, ecologically responsible choice of materials and minimum visual intrusion.

“…the buildings have a scale, dignity and materiality appropriate to their setting. If only everything built ... could be so physically and culturally tactful.”

“The British High Commission building in Kampala is all about engaging with the local economy. Instead of ‘arriving in a box’ (as embassies often do) this one arises out of an exploration by architect, client and local contractors of the vernacular and the ways in which it can be adapted to the needs of sophisticated building types such as these. By using and adapting local materials, this project seems literally to grow out of the red soil of Africa.”
