It's great to be included in the Country Life Top 100 again this year - being listed amongst the great architects, interior designers, garden designers and specialists.
There are few more rewarding experiences than successfully breathing new life into an old house - or commissioning a new one. For the seventh year, Country Life has compiled its ever-evolving list of architects, interior designers, garden designers and specialists with the experience and creativity required to get it right.
Our listing reads:
Following recent promotions, Darren Price and Robert Cox have joined the design directors Nigel Anderson, Hugh Petter, George Saumarez Smith, and Robbie Kerr, who, together, lead a team of 100 staff based in offices in Winchester and London. Sustainability and energy efficiency are now vitally important both for new-build projects and in improving existing, listed and historic buildings.
Dr Martina Pacifici now leads the sustainability team, ensuring that design and delivery of all the company's projects are carried out in the most carbon-efficient manner. Work continues at the new urban extension at Nansledan in Newquay with the Duchy of Cornwall, the restoration and preservation of a number of listed or historic buildings, and a variety of projects overseas. Living Tradition, a new book on Mr Petter's recent work, will be published by Triglyph Books this autumn.
