The practice has since become an industry leader in crafted, contemporary residential design, working in some of London’s most iconic locations on a wide range of projects, from a slender residential building on Hanover Street in Mayfair to the 5-star Bulgari Hotel & Residences with Antonio Citterio Patricial Viel & Partners in Knightsbridge.
The practice’s approach to design, assumes that every site has its own history, character and needs. Derived from a sense of place, buildings respond to underlying themes of materiality, scale and proportion which are common to their locations, whist revealing a commitment to contemporary design and detailing.
