Innes Associates is an architecture and urban design practice with a strong belief in the value for our Clients of creative thought and the benefits of a rigorous design process. Our experienced and committed team work hard on every project to maximize for our Clients the opportunities in the brief, the site and its context. We give each commission, whether large or small, the attention necessary to unlock its potential and are unwilling to let a project go until it stands as an example of design excellence.
We do not think of ourselves as specialists, except in the pursuit of good architectural design. This approach requires care to understand a brief, a Client's situation and a wider context - social as well as physical. The projects develop by building a conceptual framework around the brief and co-ordinating the contributions of others. Our work is in drawing, modelling, writing about and discussing openly the results of an evolving investigation. We are often trying to create connections between the building and the wider site, an arrangement that enhances both. For our Clients the benefits of investing in such a design process are a lasting quality to a completed project, better prediction of costs and a more certain delivery.
As well as designing for Clients we contribute to the teaching of architectural design and actively support good architecture in the UK. We are excellent communicators and willing to speak at meetings and stand up at events in explanation of a scheme and support of an approach we believe in. We also recognize that architecture is a collaborative activity and enjoy teamwork, seeking to promote the success of a project for all.
Our design work in housing, education and furniture has won recognition in national awards and competitions.
We are a RIBA Chartered Practice.
