~ Exterior Design ~
Rufus Normanton is frequently to be found with his head buried in an (he says exciting) 18th century architectural treatise. The studio's approach is therefore to produce designs which interpret the clients brief into contemporary classical buildings which are pleasing in both proportion and detailing.
Differing levels of involvement are possible; from consulting on correct classical detailing, planning applications, right the way to through to "turn key" projects.
Projects of all sizes are undertaken.
All exterior design projects are undertaken in collaboration with local architects and engineers appropriate to your region.
"We provide high quality, bespoke designs for buildings based on the principles of classical architecture."
As the "Palladian" principles of design are no longer routinely taught to students studying architecture very few new builds today are authentic to the style that was so popular between the 17th and 19th centuries.
