Inspiration and Design

Chris' approach to projects is very site specific, drawing inspiration from the surroundings the work will be in, from urban and architectural to rural and natural.  The end result of using each location as a catalyst for the design gives the work a sense of place and a link to its surroundings.  Client aspirations and vision are also a key factor in the direction Chris takes with any project. 

Chris has a passion for the mountains and valleys of the Lake District which he draws inspiration from; the scale, light, texture and colour are the raw building blocks behind his design process.  From initial sketches and maquettes to detailed construction drawings Chris brings his concepts and ideas to life. 

Throughout production our team of talented craftsmen ensure that all elements within a project are delivered with a meticulous attention to detail. 

As well as in-house design, Chris works alongside some of the best designers, landscape architects and engineers from around the UK.  Helping them realise their vision and bringing extensive build knowledge and experience to the design table.
