The tight urban context in which they sit is inevitably far removed from the spacious landscapes surrounding country houses, but the central concerns remain the same; to use the best elements and principles of traditional architecture, while providing sustainable solutions for life in the 21st century.

This approach helps to inspire confidence in local authorities, often resulting in a smooth transition through the planning process.
