with a wide range of architectural services and advice - Party Walls; Environment and Sustainability; Space Planning; Landscape integration; Visualisation and of course our unique crossover into Theatre Design and performance. More details below or please contact us if any of this chimes with your needs.
Simply put, the Party Wall Act manages building work on or against a boundary line. In practice, owners and neighbours often feel the system is against them and an unnecessary expense. However, early advice can often prevent conflict escalating where none is intended, and minimise problems should they occur. There's usually a solution to suit all parties.
We can help advise you whether you are planning work near your boundary, or if you have received notice from your neighbours.
It is the inside of our buildings that we touch. Door handles, rails, switches - and the design choices for these - are vital parts of any project. So it seems odd that Space Planning & Interiors are ever separated from Architecture.
We always consider how the inside of our buildings work best, but sometimes you will need more. With experience from exuberant nightclubs and bars, to shops, offices or quiet libraries, we can help you to make the best use of your space.
Architecture is not simply about the creation of walls and facades. We say that the creation of great spaces, whether interior or exterior ones, is the fundamental concern of architects. This is why we chose the open-ended name of VOID.
For many years, architects have been concerned about environmental issues; now with an official Climate Emergency we are all concerned.
We have lots of experience carefully tailoring solutions for our clients, from integrated fabric ceilings, heat and light to solar shading, ventilation and daylighting systems, even phase change cooling.
We can provide you with simple analysis of our proposals, sun and daylight studies, to give you an early idea of your carbon footprint and to help optimise our designs.
Our buildings are always part of a bigger picture - whether in a town or rural landscape. We are sensitive to their setting, and work with other professionals to get the best results, from the extensive flood management and 5 acres of forest at Lakeland to small courtyards.
We can even claim an award winning garden at Chelsea Flower Show!
More than pretty pictures - we can produce views of any part of a design at any stage, so you can see what is going on, what's possible, and what impact it has.
