25 years is a significant milestone for the practice. A quarter of a century of helping our clients achieve their aspirations has been a very rewarding journey. Over the years our central philosophy of developing a clear brief, producing effective imaginative solutions and being ever mindful of our client’s budgets has ensured our ongoing success.
Architects as a profession are sometimes criticised for their ivory tower stance – our practice pride itself on promoting the antithesis of this belief. For Grainge Architects, every project remains different, we believe our varied portfolio of completed projects with no apparent house style is evidence of our ability to satisfy our clients diverse requirements.
Working across a broad spectrum of building types and user groups has given the team at Grainge Architects a thorough knowledge of what’s going on out there. Cross pollination of ideas gained in one area helps inform another. Practicing primarily in the West Country we have developed a strong sense of context. We have also learnt to work within the constraints & opportunities of the local economy.
Our diverse portfolio ranging from private houses to universities or new town masterplans shows how through our own success we have grown with that of the South West Region. Our clients ranging from Government bodies to private individuals and businesses value our commitment to producing good design whilst achieving both value for money and surpassing expectations. Our hope is that the practice will continue to develop and prosper over the next 25 years as we are fortunate to have an immensely talented team who are committed to the practice. The following illustrations show a brief selection of some of our more memorable projects from over the last 25 years.
