P3A team

profile

Our passion is the creation of innovative contemporary architectural solutions. We believe in bespoke, site-specific architectural responses which lead to a progressive architecture based on modernist principles. We do not have a preconceived approach other than enthusiasm for delivering high quality, creative and intuitive architecture which aims to exceed the expectations of our clients and to stimulate and enhance the built environment in which our buildings sit. We have the ability to improve quality of life by designing buildings and environments that have legibility and simplicity at their core.

Project 3 Architects have extensive and recent experience in a wide range of sectors. We continue to work on repeat projects, testimony to the level of service and client satisfaction we provide. We are realists, recognising that commercial viability and environmental setting impact greatly on final architectural solutions. Our skills lie in distilling the ingredients required for successful development by good communication, listening, responding to clients’ needs and developing their requirements; creating value through good design. We view the design process as a collaborative relationship between architect, client and the wider design team.

Our ethos treats architecture as the ultimate visual art. We relish each opportunity that we are given to shape our environment for all to enjoy.
