Architect’s Statement
Dive Architects was founded in 2001 by Ia Hjärre and Andy Nettleton. We believe creative, high quality architecture is the result of a close dialogue with our clients. Realising a project can be a long and demanding process. We see our role to approach every project with energy and enthusiasm, from idea to the final result. We work for a wide range of clients with projects not just in Europe but also in Africa and the Middle East. We have produced a number of award winning schemes and completed projects have attracted much attention from national and international press.

Architect’s Statement
Terry Pawson is committed to delivering good architecture. Each project is a process of iteration between the architect and the client. From the abstraction of a design concept, to the refinement of the most modest detail, the process of producing a building is an act of balance between conceptual clarity and constructional pragmatism.

Architect’s Statement
Lynch Architects is an award winning practice based in Clerkenwell in London. We were recipients of The Young Architect of the Year Award 2005 and were exhibited in the official selection of the Venice Architectural Biennale in 2012, and in the Irish Pavilion in 2008. Our work ranges from individual houses and residential and commercial developments to arts and community projects. We work at a variety of scales, from master plans to interior design, and pay close attention to the social, ecological, historical and economic aspects of places. We work with physical models to investigate the spatial, constructional, formal and material qualities of architecture. We believe that good design derives from the search for a poetic economy of means.

Architect’s Statement
Greg Blee and Lee Halligan see themselves as creative problem solvers. They have designed houses on difficult sites, for instance a pair of houses set within historic stone ruins, and have adapted old, undervalued buildings into bright, spatious, flexible homes. Their strength is in looking beyond the awkward spaces or the strangely shaped corner of land to create a home that is clever, cheap to run, easy to maintain and above all exciting to use. The practice prides itself on developing efficient and cost effective designs that squeeze the maximum out of a site or building and to transform it into something really special.
