RWA is committed to providing high quality design, tailored to suit client requirements and approaching each project on an individual basis. Good design is achieved through a collaborative approach and the relationship between client and Architect is essential to the outcome.  RWA’s one to one personal service ensures a consistent approach throughout the design process.

At RWA sustainability is at the forefront of every design solution, regardless of project scale.  Each project will be designed to address its immediate environment and to maximise where possible the use of renewable energy solutions. With a background in conservation RWA are conscious of the need to protect our built heritage and will ensure every effort is made for design  solutions which will allow old structures to be adapted for a new use without damage to their original character.
