Culture


We have established a leading reputation for performing arts and civic projects; Storyhouse is a venue that instantly became the flagship for culture and community in Chester.

Workplace


We are part of a revolution in workplace design that is driven by people’s changing needs; 5 Pancras Square is a home for a thousand mobile workers at Camden Council’s headquarters.

Education


Innovation in research and teaching, and agile ways of learning are empowering education; Potterrow is a synergetic environment for the future of Informatics and Computer Science.

Cities


Our masterplans and buildings are supporting regeneration across the UK; 40 Chancery Lane is an elegant, highly crafted base for a leading advertising agency in the heart of the City of London.
