We are an established, award winning Architects Practice based in York – but we have worked all over the UK and in China and India.

Led by David Spencer Dip.Arch RIBA, the practice has covered a wide spectrum of building types.

Our Philosophy

We listen – thats it!

We listen to you – the Client, to understand your design needs and desires.

We listen to the Design Team to ensure a coordinated building with each discipline being valued.

We listen to the Planners – to understand their problems and we work with them towards achieving the goal of planning approval.

We listen to the Contractor – to understand their buildability issues and achieve resolution and assist in a smooth building programme.

Last but not least, we listen to ourselves, using our design and technical skills to create beautiful, economic and quality buildings for you, the Client.
