Through earlier projects for schools, colleges and universities we have developed a strong understanding of the important factors in current educational design. Space For Learning, the 2015 guidance publication by a consortium including Clore Duffield Foundation, HLF and the Arts Council features heavily the Orleans House Gallery Education Centre – a project led by Michael Kaner while at Patel Taylor.

Many of our projects are directly for ‘user’ clients rather than speculative developments. We have well honed techniques for consultation and communication of ideas – we listen first and then analyse and develop ideas from this. Getting ‘buy in’ from a very wide range of users is essential in community projects as well as strong holistic sustainability and maximising what is achieved within tight budgets.

We have established a strong track record in working with Grade 1, Grade 2* and Grade 2 listed buildings and sensitive sites. Many of our public projects are funded by the Heritage Lottery. As well as conservation and repair using traditional techniques, we enjoy working with contemporary elements in a historic setting. This type of work requires an intellectual rigour and clear methodology based on sound research. We are proud to have won a number of awards and commendations in this field.
We love working with creative people as conventional ideas can be challenged and the final solutions can often exceed expectations. We have worked with clients that are sculptors, painters, photographers, theatre directors and gallery curators. Many of our projects have also involved interpreting a site or a theme through graphics, words, images or objects.
We believe that places of work benefit hugely from being high quality considered environments. Themes such as ergonomics, identity, daylight, spatial planning, organisational management, flexibility have to be addressed within often limited budgets. Innovative approaches that challenge the perceived ‘norms’ can reap great rewards in productivity and wellbeing.
