‘Their residential design is super and the house fits very well within its setting, as well as creating a beautiful, light family home. For us the creation of a very low energy house using sustainable architecture principles was key to the brief, and we appreciated Thomas Robinson's refreshing outlook in exploring sustainable building materials and construction approaches.’

Architecture is our core service. In our Residential Architecture Services, we aim to help our clients realise their dream environment, whether at work, rest or play, in a new home, extending an old home, at the office or a place of worship.
