Like all good Emporiums, Architectural Emporium (AE) is a seller of unique goods. AE brings vigour, creativity and dynamism to projects of all size and type. Not defined by a particular style, each project is treated individually and thorough detailed responses are sought.
Architectural Emporium is an award winning RIBA Chartered Practice defined by the varied portfolio and architectural background of its three directors, who offer a wealth of experience in all sectors and work stages. All capable designers, design tutors and project architects, AE’s directors are involved in every scheme and employ an inclusive and collaborative design approach, fostering creative dialogue with clients, the consultant team, contractors and end users.
Our team is extremely passionate about creating environments which ultimately enhance the lives of those who will use them. However, we believe that this is not possible without first gaining an in depth understanding of those people’s needs. Whether it be a single person or whole community, AE specialise in being able to successfully engage in a variety of ways but then, crucially, also translate these desires and aspirations into schemes which truly reflect them.
Although AE’s interventions are unique and bespoke to each site and the client’s requirements, it is possible to detect some underlying themes common in the portfolio, such as: simple legible forms; context driven sensitive proposals; structures and components re-described and recycled; sustainable and efficient arrangements; thoughtful and inventive enveloping; innovative use of affordable materials; consideration of interiors and furniture as integral; careful and sophisticated detailing.
Sustainable buildings and communities are key concerns and are integrated into design responses. It is of paramount importance to improve the built environment and provide better quality places through effective strategic planning and contemporary, affordable and original architectural interventions.
