As a practice and as individuals a sense of social purpose is a key driver for the work that we do. We have over 25 years’ experience of collaborating with socially driven organisations and clients who share the belief in our responsibility to create spaces for people and communities and not for the profit of the few.

We undertake research with this agenda though LSE cities programme and in house, sit on advisory groups for ethical and sustainable development, and support New London Architecture, Heart of the City, and the Architecture Foundation.

We strongly believe that the profession should better reflect the society it serves, and the need to break down the ever-increasing barriers to entry. We partner with universities including London School of Architecture, Kingston University and the University of Sheffield collaborative practice programme, employing students and offering work placements to support alternative routes for training.

Members of our team sit on the board for Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust, and mentor through the RIBA, Arts Emergency and the Social Mobility Foundation. We run an established work experience programme offering experience of practice to school students interested in a career in architecture and have worked with school groups through the RIBA Architecture Ambassadors scheme. We sponsor Architecture LGBT+, Starr Trust, Theatres Trust, and the Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust.
