Profile

Established in 2016 by one founding director, we are now a growing, ambitious, multi-national team of nine.

Our big ideas have led to winning projects, from a £5,000 pop-up exhibition to a £20m new build, mixed-use scheme.

We have a focus on low energy, sustainable development and we call this approach ‘RE:LOW’. Our projects are underpinned by this philosophy and our core focus is to re-purpose, re-cycle and re-store aiming to deliver low-tech, low-impact and low-maintenance buildings. We apply this to all of our projects, helping to minimise their impact on the planet.

We are trusted by business owners and entrepreneurs to deliver their vision by understanding their business and bringing unexpected, original solutions to the table. We work with our clients from the very start of their business journey. We listen, understand their vision, refine, test through research, and then bring their projects to life. We assemble the right team of experts, led by a dedicated project lead, working collaboratively to build trust and achieve our common goal.

We are architects who get operational businesses. We deliver both quality design and project efficiencies whilst never compromising the end result.

We’ve delivered projects that have broken the mould for both start-ups and larger, established developers. We are forever entering new territory; our studio ethos is to lead, not follow the pack. We thrive on next generation projects, regardless of whether they are for founder-led SMEs or FTSE established organisations.

In just 6 years, we have attracted a growing base of loyal and ambitious clients. Our loyal client base includes recurring projects with some of UK’s leading developers and maverick business-owners. We are proud to have worked on industry-recognised one-off projects, secured through both word-of-mouth recommendations and one-off, invited competitions.

We are based in a ground floor unit on Rivington Street, Shoreditch, East London.
