We create amazing spaces where stories are told and music is made.

Put simply, we love what we do. Passion for our work and for your vision means we are constantly striving to realise the best possible environment for performance. Working in partnership with architects and engineering teams, we specialise in design services for a wide range of creative spaces: from historic theatres to contemporary workplaces; permanent buildings to temporary structures, and from the physical to the digital world.

Our work has always been founded in a creative, multi-disciplinary team approach and this remains key to our culture. Our global studio teams collaborate on every project we touch, regardless of where the project is based. This means that every brief is interrogated from every possible angle, creating new approaches and fresh innovation every single time.

Collaboration and genuine relationships are at the heart of everything we do, resulting in unique and innovative solutions that draw the best out of every space and place. Whatever the scale of budget we are driven by the desire to deliver individual solutions, derived from a deep understanding of you and your project.

So yes. We love what we do and we think you will too.
