Our approach

We’re a proud Liverpool practice of 27 people with a visible presence in the city we call home, and a tireless commitment to excellence. Expertise in residential, education, leisure and regeneration has allowed us to lead the industry on a regional North-West level, and succeed in a range of other locations across the country.


Central to our approach is close collaboration with our clients so that, from the very first briefing, we have a clear idea of their needs, concerns and aspirations for the project – regardless of size or function.

Studio culture

Our company culture is a positive one, one that benefits not just employees but clients too. We're Investors in People accredited with a focus on personal development and fostering creativity. 

We have an internal wellbeing group that ensures the office is both healthy and happy. The group works on sustainability, topical CPDs, internal fitness events, nutritional advice and more.

In 2011 Brock Carmichael established a local presence in Hong Kong and formed a joint venture vehicle called the Octagon Partnership, this operates throughout China from locations in Hong Kong, Beijing and Shanghai.
