Design

 

We are an architectural design and make practice, bringing the craft, skill and knowledge of making into all of our design work.

At the larger end of the scale, we specialise in the residential architecture sector, working across all RIBA Work Stages 0-7: from initial project appraisal, through the approvals process, to construction, interior design, completion and occupation. Whilst we undertake work nationally and internationally, we have excellent working relationships with local collaborators and authorities in the South West and a portfolio of beautifully executed architectural projects in the region.

At the smaller end of the scale, we undertake design work for whole rooms, products, furniture and installations from concept development through to workshop and fabrication drawings. We are equally experienced in preparing workshop drawings for a skilled craftsperson or fabrication drawings for computer aided manufacture.

Make

 

From our Devon workshops we craft beautiful things, built to function and built to last. We pay careful attention to showcasing unique material properties and finishes with particular expertise in timber, metalwork and leather. Our use and marriage of materials is often the premise of our concepts, seeking out relevant new processes through innovative research and fearless experimentation.

We make at a range of scales, with our portfolio ranging from a doorstop to an entire small building. We bring the rigour, detail and critical thinking of design into all of our making. Equally we see making as a part of the design process as a means of realising the concept without compromise.

Our involvement in the making process varies to suit the needs of each client and their project. We are happy to produce designs for others to execute, carry out all of the making, or work collaboratively alongside other makers.
