Existing buildings

There is a simple truth about construction: no maintenance, no building. This is why, too often, demolition is optioned – simply because of a lack of care. In theory, every building is potentially immortal; in practice too few last for even half the life of a typical British citizen.

We have been unlocking the potential of existing buildings to provide great new spaces to live and work since our foundation in the 1970s. From simple house-to-flat conversions to large scale reuse projects repurposing warehouses, hospitals and factories, working with existing buildings has always been central to our practice.

More recently, we’ve focused on workplace retrofits and large scale urban renewal, integrating restored structures within bigger new build projects.
