We are lucky to be based in an area with a rich thread of art and architecture, which is reflected in the number of outstanding designers whom we admire, to be found in close proximity to us. 

Designing your home, or workplace, is such a personal journey and we understand that we might not be the exact fit for everyone. With this in mind we thought we should share some alternative design practices that we admire. 

We are located just on the border of Hampshire, a rich county which includes aspects of the South Downs National Park, the New Forest National Park and boasts 230 miles of beautiful coastline. 

First up here are some architectural practices in Hampshire, in no particular order:
