Architecture: the Art of Building Design...

The best architecture comes from the collaboration of the creative building design and structural engineering. As the Practice Principal Mark English has a proven track record in Architecture, Architectural Technology and Structural Engineering for the ideal multi-disciplined combination. This is accompanied with over 20 years design experience within residential, industrial and commercial construction.

The practice provides clients with cost effective architectural and structural engineering design for a variety of property developments and new build projects.

Commercial projects include social, retail, sports and leisure developments such as shops, restaurants, public houses, hotels, community sports centres and swimming pools.

My Philosophy

Creative and Functional Architecture...

"Each project we undertake we strive to interpret our client's requirements to create individual, elegant and innovative solutions.

This approach begins with a thorough analysis of the brief, exploring the potential within each site. We investigate the technical detail, structural engineering options and finish material choices available, whilst working closely with each client to achieve fully compliant architecture without comprimising design intent resulting in a space beyond expectation." - Mark English, Practice Principal
