We push the boundaries with creative, inspirational designs and make them happen

We have an extensive portfolio of building architecture across a remarkable diversity of projects and sectors ranging from hotels and hospitals to churches and schools. We are hugely experienced in all aspects of the healthcare estate, have worked on an array of exciting projects for commercial and industrial clients, as well as fantastic educational establishments,  leisure facilities, community venues and residential developments to name a few.

We have established ourselves as a team that can take on the most testing commissions for  building design – such as the U.K.’s first Dental Hospital and School of Dentistry to be built in 40 years. This £33m facility demanded exceptional design flexibility and won the 2017 RICS design award for innovation. Our commissions also see us working overseas. Being 1,000s of miles away from clients and projects will never compromise our approach or the results for any building design and construction project we take on. We were delighted to be awarded second place in the international Dewan award for Architecture.

ONE’s approach

Whatever the challenge, our starting point for a piece of architecture is always to understand people’s needs, vision and aspirations before we look at the building design. The building of strong relationships with clients, users and communities, ensures a shared vision and strengthened ownership. Clients see us as a partner who looks ahead to resolve potential problems before they happen to minimise their risk. Our commercial know-how also ensures designs are not only achievable but affordable.

As commercial architects, we are constantly pushing the traditional design boundaries with our innovative use of the latest technology in building design and management. Our innovative use of Building Information Modelling services (BIM) using REVIT building design technologies (and it’s many affiliated programs), has won us many industry awards. Our early adoption of this revolutionary software allows us to take our clients on an immersive journey with us through the design process, so that they can make informed decisions and we solve challenges for the building design & construction before any work starts on site.

Low carbon building design

As fully accredited low carbon building design and passive house building designers, we are driven to get the inherent design right which minimises the need for bolt-ons and interventions such as air conditioning or excessive artificial lighting. With an inhouse fully multi-disciplinary team, sustainability is always at the heart of our design process and all discipline design aspects are considered and integrated right from the start. Our Passive approach to building design has been recognised in many industry awards for sustainability. Further details about our approach to sustainable design can be found here.

Intuitive and emotive design

Have you ever entered a building for the first time and felt instantly lost? You’ve probably just encountered some unreadable building architecture. We believe people should be able to ‘read’ an unfamiliar environment intuitively through a distinctive reference point, for example, through unobstructed views by exposing staircases or using balconies instead of closed corridors. As people move through a piece of architecture they should experience an emotional journey along with the physical one. Whether we are designing an office, industrial unit, hospital, school or any other environment, we use a range of approaches to improve people’s experience.

A highly skilled team

ONE is a RIBA chartered practice. With extensive experience across all sectors, all our disciplines pride themselves on innovation and creative solutions. You will find passion for our projects in everything we do for our clients.

Our team’s ambition and love for architecture goes beyond the day job. Our appreciation for architecture also sees us undertaking speaking opportunities at prestigious events and positions of responsibility within the industry, for example, Becki Smith – Senior Associate Architect at ONE is the current Chair for the Worcestershire Society of Chartered Architects.
