About Us

WE ARE AN ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN AGENCY WITH A DIFFERENCE.

While we know that our clients come to us for fresh ideas and a new perspective, it is also hugely important to us that the resulting structures perform as they should. Your home or commercial building should ultimately stand the test of time for many future generations.

Established in 2003, many on Our Team have extensive on-site building and construction experience. This puts us in a very unique position of being able to ensure our designs and detailing are practical and achievable. This in turn allows us to better relate with contractors and sub-trades - building respect and improving the flow of information and communication.

 

Our Team

COME AND MEET THE CREATIVE SPACE TEAM

We enjoy working together as much as we enjoy working with you. We believe we can achieve more by sharing our individual ideas, skills and experience. It’s an open and co-operative environment that really works.

"Form follows function" (Louis H. Sullivan, 1896) - I think this is true of all structures, regardless of their size. I have developed a very good understanding of structure, having worked closely with engineers for over 10yrs at the early stages of my career. I am inspired by finding simplistic, elegant and functional solutions to complex construction issues.
