Transforming Workspaces

We are a family firm since 1850 and very proud of our heritage. We are a mix of Architects, Interior Designers, Strategists and Creative people that create workspaces that allow you and your team to do their best work.

Our work combines design in its finest form together with logical workflows to develop supportive, efficient and uplifting work environments that drive culture and inspire communication and collaboration. We love what we do, we have been around for a long time. Old but young.

We love what we do. The science, the strategy, the research and the creative concepts.

Most of all, we love watching the transformation over the months and years that follow. That’s a particular privilege of steadfastly forming strong, lasting, personal relationships with our clients.

Our Heritage

Values lead,
people focused

As a office space planning family business for over 150 years, we have a pedigree and set of values that mean we can offer a highly honed set of very specialist skills. The evidence of this can be seen in every project we undertake.

This has led to a level of knowledge and industry insight that is simply unparalleled in this market place. In a nutshell, we are a family team who genuinely care about our clients and our work.

Dods and Woodalls in The Shard

Their Who’s Who book for example is a must have for anyone that has reason to engage or monitor the workings of British Governance.

Two firms from the 19th Century
shaping the 21st

the future of your desk

Are we witnessing the
death of the desk?

The desk has always been the office stalwart, for decades, the individual workplace for employees. They have been through numerous changes in shape and style, gained curves, holes for cables, crafted from different materials… but their ethos has always remained the same, as a representation of work – a symbol of routine, repetition and, as […]
