A simple concept to achieve Wellness through Architecture. Grown from a shared passion for nature, designers Ben Comber and Josh Newsome-White have embarked on an adventure to create expertly refined, functional and sustainable Architecture.

We strive to grow and nurture the relationships with our clients to truly understand how they want to live. Not defined by a predetermined design aesthetic, our projects are instead informed by their surrounding context. Whether densely urban or isolated in nature, each project is rigorously tested to ensure that it is environmentally conscious while also improving the health and wellbeing of our clients.

Equal balance is placed on the visual aesthetic and the desired functional performance, resulting in homes that are architecturally considered, healthy, and energy efficient. Each project is guided by the movement of the sun alongside an ethos of rational planning and obsessive attention to detail.
