POW architects view the practice of architecture through a wide-angle lens. Understanding – and being active across – the full project spectrum, from pre-concept to post-completion, helps us make architecture and buildings, better. We are equally adept at working in close-up, engaging with the specific challenges that each aspect of the process presents.
We are an established small studio with a big-practice expertise and mindset. Our office is a place for trading intelligence and experience. By fostering an atmosphere of sustained learning, we build on our successes and keep improving through research and innovation.
We enjoy buildings which are elegant as much for the way they are put together as for the way they are drawn. We achieve this by adopting a practical perspective, applying smart technical thinking in a purposeful way to deliver great buildings for our clients.
We sit on your side of the table. We value partnership and co-operation, and approach every project as a shared adventure. Such adventures thrive on honest exchange, and for this reason POW directors are closely involved throughout. We are available, answerable and aim to make your life as simple as possible
We provide unparalleled customer service and create long lasting relationships which benefit both parties involved in the process of design and construction of buildings.
