Our practice prioritises simplicity in design and construction whilst embracing life’s complexities and acknowledging our potential impact on the earth. 

At plain architecture, we take the time to understand your needs, your budget, the unique qualities of your site, and your future plans before we start designing.  We involve the necessary consultants and contractors as early as possible to ensure the smoothest possible path to the best result. We include you all the way through the process, meaning you play an active role in creating your architecture. We have made buildings, gardens and furniture with our own hands, and our understanding of the maker’s perspective protects projects from risk and ensures builds and buildings are ethical.

 

Our aim is to synthesise a project’s complexities to achieve architecture greater than the sum of its parts; buildings that belong to their site and serve their users with grace – plain and simple.
