Solving Spaces.
Evolving Workplaces.

We find the connection between people and space.

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 where 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.
