'The thing always happens that you really believe in; and belief in a thing makes it happen.'
Frank Lloyd Wright

We are a small architecture, interior design and landscape design practice operating from the heart of the Cotswolds - our office is in the village of Kelmscott, once the country home of William Morris.

William Morris is famous for having said: 'Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful.'

We believe the truth in this saying, and in common with William Morris are inspired by the natural world around us. We believe in using simple natural materials to enrich our work and that an environment made of natural materials is the most healthy environment for human habitation and work. We are committed to an architecture that connects us more closely to the natural world around us. We are therefore very keen on vernacular, arts and crafts, organic and sustainable architecture, and we will always offer our clients a range of natural and sustainable options in the course of meeting their architectural requirements.

The Practice principal is Peter King RIBA. We offer all regular architectural services (see the 'Services' section of this site) and can additionally offer Interior Design and Landscape/Garden Design services.
