A values driven
business

Our mission is to make great
places and prosper people.


Well-designed places make a real difference to people’s lives. We recognise that it is both a privilege and a responsibility to design the places where life unfolds. We want people to love where they live, work and play. This is why we work hard to make buildings and places better.

We are both design led and commercially savvy, committed to adding value for our clients by design. We have an established reputation for both designing and delivering better places and have been privileged to win a range of awards, including a Civic Trust Award, British Construction Industry Award and an Architecture Masterprize.

We believe that good design should fit the people and places it is designed for. At Snug we design locally distinctive modern architecture that responds creatively to its context. We call it ‘spectacular vernacular’. It is not so much a style as an approach to design that applies what we have observed to be successful.

We are highly creative designers who trust intuition and the power of a good idea. We recognise however, that better places are also hard won through a process of dedicated refinement and teamwork. This is why we created the image of the rhino and the bird. It reminds us that we succeed through collaboration.

We don't just design, we deliver too. We work across all project stages from inception to completion and seek to support our clients throughout the life of your project, completing what we start.

“Both our process and our product prosper people; socially,
environmentally, financially and spiritually.”

We are committed to ensuring both our process and our product prosper our clients and team; socially, environmentally, financially and spiritually. We do this best when we maintain a healthy and sustainable work-life balance.

We recognise that it is your project. We promise to listen to you and will seek to align values, so that we can help you deliver on your objectives and realise the potential of your project. Above all, we want our designs to fit both the people and places where we work. Good design fits 'snugly'. This is why we are called Snug...
