Work experience

Today we were joined by Ben, a work experience student. Ben designed concept proposals for two very different learning spaces and a new family house. It’s been a very productive day.


Planning Permission for Slinky

We have the pleasure to announce we received Full Planning Permission for our proposal for the Scarborough Esplanade regeneration aka Slinky.

The project was developed in collaboration with the Lincolnshire Community Foundation and features in our Projects section.


Our new office

We are delighted to announce that we recently moved into our new space.

Right in the centre of historical Lincoln, the location could not be better.  We are a stone’s throw from the cathedral and the castle. We’re excited about the hustle and bustle outside our windows and all of the great bars and restaurants within an easy walking distance of the new location.

The new office is on the first floor, just opposite OSKA and Object and Line.

The office has been redecorated and furnished in various shades of white. We’ve discovered RAL9010 ‘Pure white’ has a hint of yellow.  We’re still working on getting settled in and adding artwork to the walls, but we’re very happy to be in the new space.

Thanks to everyone for their support through the first year and with the move.

Our project featured in BBC article

Our project featured in BBC News article and in ‘Look North’.  It reports on our design for Scarborough Esplanade, aka Slinky. We are very excited!

‘A planned attraction for Skegness will protect holidaymakers from the “bracing” winds the seaside town is famous for.
The £1.2m development will include a walkway to protect against adverse weather, with stages at either end.
East Lindsey District Council claims the shape of the walkway mirrors the waving arms of the Lincolnshire resort’s famous Jolly Fisherman mascot.
Those involved hope it will become an “iconic addition” to the foreshore.’
