Who We Are

Established since 2003, we are a husband and wife team who design and manage building projects with an emphasis on high-quality, contemporary design. We work on projects that can be managed closely with hands-on involvement and commitment to each. Our motivation lies in creating functional spaces that have the ability to excite and please their users. Buildings should be highly individual; responding to their context, site conditions and history.

Our Vision

It is our challenge to take Client’s aspirations and to generate buildings of today, which can mature, evolve and be fun to use whilst retaining a timeless classic quality. For us, good contemporary design embodies the qualities of all good buildings new or old such as:

  • the use of natural light and sunlight
  • the use of appropriate scale
  • spatial arrangements that function well
  • the use of materials to create a rich composition
  • harmony between the building, its internal spaces and the landscape

What We Do

The services we offer cover all aspects of the design process from initial feasibility advice through concept design, planning and Listed Building approvals, detail design, Building Regulations, tender and construction. We also offer pre-purchase advice to Clients who have found their dream location but not necessarily their dream house.

Adam and Annelise provide a highly professional personal service. We were very impressed throughout the entire process from initial scoping of ideas through to planning and consent – as well as support and oversight during the build. See full project at Cottage Kitchen Extension
Sam Y, Kent
Having purchased one of their speculative houses, Annelise and Adam were painstakingly attentive in making sure our last minute modifications were made…. The strong contemporary design really opened our eyes to the joys of light and the concept of bringing the garden and surrounding trees into the home as a feature of the property. The layout naturally flowed with the natural finishes in each room enhancing the quality of life. It could be both intimate and an amazing expansive space for entertaining.
