An architect's design process is very iterative and requires tremendous thought on many factors such as accessibility, budget, building layout, time-span, amongst a multitude of other topics.

The above pictured sketch floor plan of a nursery depicts an early design proposal from ourselves. The client came to us seeking to improve the existing learning environment whilst increasing capacity for more children. This design was conceived from the idea of working with the existing structural form to keep costs down, whilst ensuring a quality and healthy learning environment. All the learning spaces have been positioned to maximise access to plenty of natural light and to ensure a visual connection to the outdoors.

From a continuous loop of feedback and discussions with the client, the design has evolved from that pictured but many elements are still current in the latest design revision and we look forward to taking this project through to the next stage.

A short animation for a project that we are working on in Bath. The client is looking to design a new extension to their existing property which can connect their upper level living spaces with the steeply sloping garden.

Whenever we begin a new architecture project, we always meet with the client first to discuss their design ideas and ambitions. The next step would be to conduct a site survey. Pictured above is the outcome from a site survey of a Georgian house in Bristol, thought to be approximately 250 years old. During a site survey, we take measurements across the entire building and landscape which allows us to model the existing site in 3D. The 3D model is used throughout the entirety of a project and allows us to quickly formulate design proposals which we can share with the client to view in their own time in the comfort of their own home.

All the necessary drawings such as floor plans, elevations, sections, details, are taken from the model which we use for planning applications and building regulation drawings. As a design progresses, we can very quickly compare the existing site to the size of the proposed development which can help with working to budgets and constraints of the site.
