Celebrating 50 years!

Celebrating 50 years!

On Thursday 21st September we celebrated our 50th anniversary with a drinks reception at Una Resort St Ives.

The venue, a Poynton Bradbury project that completed in 2015, provided an excellent backdrop to celebrate with clients, consultants, friends and family.

The occasion gave us the opportunity to not only look back at the past 50 years but also to consider the next 50 years for the practice, architecture and the wider built environment context.

Installations included a timeline wall honouring past projects, staff and events; an animation considering future opportunities and aspirations on the theme of people, place and planet; and one of our major upcoming projects was showcased with a virtual reality headset.

Of course, speeches were made, commemorating and thanking all those who have contributed to the practice’s success over the past 50 years.

As part of our ongoing ambition to reduce our carbon footprint, we gave out 50 trees to contribute towards and cultivate our green spaces of the future.

Thankyou to all those who came and made it such a wonderful event.

Here’s to the next 50 years!
