Peak Architects are a design led practice. We believe the success of any project is in exceeding the aspirations of our clients whist considering the external influences that may impact upon a project (cost, programme, planning and site constraints).
Central to ‘our approach’ are the following principles, which we apply to all projects and at all stages of the process:
Collaboration The success of any project is the quality of the team and its collective approach; we will guide, motivate and control this group from start to finish.
Client Consultation Central to each project is the client, through continuous dialogue we will articulate the client’s vision and exceed their aspirations.
Design Good design is central to the role of the architect, it must inspire but it need not take more money or time or be attention seeking.
AffordabilityDetermining budgetary constraints at the outset of the project is important, working within this budget and controlling cash flow are essential.
IntegrityWe act in a professional manner; treating all parties with the courtesy and respect expected…engendering ‘trust’.
Deliverability Understanding materials and applying good detailing are essential in the delivery of high quality buildings.
Pro-active We are pro-active not reactive; we encourage a ‘can do’ attitude.
SustainabilitySustainability is an integral part of good architecture; we aim to design buildings that are best prepared for future changes whilst considering their impacts from inception and construction to operation and beyond.
Knowledge We are committed to best practice through continued learning.
Flexibility Flexibility in use and ease of potential adaptation in the future are key considerations in the design of all of our projects
