Award winning architects established in 1985 by Ralph Carpenter and Richard Scales.

Our office is located in the Suffolk countryside between Sudbury and Bury St Edmunds.

We coined the phrase ‘deep green architecture' ... using materials with the lowest possible embodied energy and serviced by carbon neutral systems.

Use of natural materials allows us to create comfortable, healthy and beautiful buildings for people to live and work in.

Our architecture responds to seasonal weather variations and climate change using simple design principles such as orientation, mass, solar shading and natural ventilation with simple control systems. Complicated high-tech equipment is not necessary.

In short - our buildings lift your spirits and sit lightly on the earth.
