Social Events


As with any close knit team, we regularly enjoy many group activities and social events, both inside and outside of working hours. There are always opportunities to learn and have fun together which ultimately benefits our working environment. 


Work experience


We are always keen to share our knowledge and enthusiasm with the next generation. Throughout the year we have a number of work experience placements available and often mentor students from the local area. Our students regularly leave their placements armed with the necessary skills to start the architectural journey. 


 We are a friendly bunch of likeminded individuals. However due to an ever expanding workload we are always on the lookout for the right person. We seek highly motivated and talented people who can bring something special to our close knit team. Whether you are a professional, student or looking for a summer placement, teamwork is at the heart of our practice. We can offer the right applicant a rewarding and dynamic work environment, giving you the skills and expertise to further your architectural knowledge and career.
