What We Do
The approach of Ridge Architecture is grounded in the desire to create simple, elegant, sustainable and functional buildings and structures which withstand the test of time in terms of style, performance and user needs.
On every project we aim for design excellence and the optimum solution for our clients. This requires a thorough understanding of each client’s aspirations and needs and a talent for developing solutions which reconcile these with each project’s unique set of constraints. To facilitate this, we have developed a rigorous approach to briefing and aim to identify project objectives in an open and transparent way. This starts with an open inquisitive mind, active listening, being sensitive to stakeholder requirements and a proactive approach to solving problems. We approach every project with enthusiasm and commitment.
Ridge provides either a stand-alone architectural service or a fully integrated design team service drawing on the considerable range of specialist in-house engineering, commercial resources and expertise.
Our experience of different forms of contract is very strong and we understand the culture and roles of the design team members in each principle form.
Ridge Architecture’s experience is rich and diverse, spans many building types and sectors, both in the UK and internationally and includes world class technical facilities, hotel, leisure and stadia buildings, education buildings, offices and private one off commissions.
