Townsend Architects is inspired by the art, science and business of building. We maintain that good building practice is a balance of good design, thoughtful detailing, and appropriate construction techniques.
ARCHITECTURE & INTERIOR DESIGN
Townsend Architects is committed to architectural excellence. Our practice philosophy is not particularly concerned with following fashions, forms and theories, nor is it restricted to a personal idiom. Instead we concern ourselves with the specifics and potential of a particular situation and moment, meeting the challenges of the programme, advancing the limits of technology but always responding sensitively to the topography or urban fabric of a buildings site.
Thoughtful buildings respond to context: space, light, climate, programme, people and materials. We endeavour to interpret these factors to generate design solutions that are appropriate, functional and innovative - an architecture that has relevance, meaning, and deals with real human need.
