A sense of place at the heart of everything we do

We design individual buildings and see these through from inception to completion. At Lathams, we look at the bigger picture to create places with a strong identity, where people want to be. A vital part of this is making sure what we do is appropriate for its context; a building must reflect the environment in which it is situated, so we pay close attention to geography, geology, history and culture.

Our service to you the client is comprehensive in providing consistent advice; from establishing the brief and considering options through robust detailing and full construction contract management.

We don't believe in 'one size fits all' architecture. What engages us are historical issues, challenging locations, planning issues, how to blend heritage with new build... all the things that make a project complex but interesting. We deal with everything in a measured, intelligent way to ease the process, improve property assets and provide the best results for our clients and building users.

Craftsmanship and sustainability informs all the work we do. Craftsmanship, because everyone at Lathams takes pride in providing consistently high levels of detail and quality. Sustainability, because it is an integral part of architecture today; our work in the re-use of buildings is one of the most pure forms of sustainability. We also insist that our new build projects embody appropriate sustainability measures, whether through code compliance, material selection or energy sourcing.
