Solving Spaces &
Evolving Workplaces

We enhance the connection between people and place.

A large proportion of our work comes under the banner of 'workplace design' - but what does that mean? Most people associate this with office design, but that’s often not the case. What we actually do is work with our clients to solve the design challenges of the places and spaces they work, wherever that may be. It could be a 20-storey office block, or it could be a recording studio, a military base, a university building or an engineering workshop. Workplace design doesn’t always have to mean desks, chairs and overbooked meeting rooms.


In response to the current health crisis, from 17th March, we will not be attending meetings, site visits or presentations in person. However, please be assured we will continue to offer our usual mix of problem solving, creativity and enterprise from wherever we are to wherever you are. Look after yourselves.


Why we work
  • #throwbackthursday to when we were in the office and not socially distancing!
.
Although we are currently working apart from each other physically, this time has allowed us to work in new and creative ways with each other.

  • We wanted to keep you updated on our 3D printing of PPE!
.
Last week, Kai one of our developers delivered 300 PPE ear guards to The Royal Shrewsbury Hospital.
.
He’s got the 3D printer running each day, alongside others from Shropshire they have been producing PPE from the early beginnings of lockdown.

  • Our friendly neighbour Dave the peacock in the office is probably wondering where we all are... A throwback ‘view from my window’ this Monday from our Shropshire office and a cameo from Dave.

  • Rainbow cake
  • Spring
  • Forget your usual building directories - we don’t really do ‘corporate’. All that hand sketching is coming together slowly but surely #sketch #pocketbook #estates #handmade
  • Our very own @rob_dunsford showing us his virtual self. Better this with clients than a talking giraffe I guess 🤷‍♂️ 👀 #memoji #videoconference #workfromhome #workplacedesign
