S+SA offers a full architectural service from concept design to hand-over. We believe that continuous collaboration throughout the design process, within the design studio and with clients, consultants, specialists and project stakeholders, is the key to the success of all our projects.

As a Practice, we cover a broad range of architectural sectors and building typologies. Our philosophy is that our designs need to react, adapt and respond to the needs of the client whilst using the surrounding context as a driving factor within the design process.

We aim not to sign up to design typologies, style or formula, instead we prefer to respond to context and the client’s needs and aspirations with a huge focus on quality in all aspects of design. This is replicated throughout the buildings we produce.

Our services include masterplanning, 3D visualisation, urban planning, fee advice, feasibility studies and counsel on building regulations and the latest legislation. We work closely with fellow professionals in planning, structural engineering and quantity surveying to ensure a cohesive and coordinated approach to your project.
