When designing housing, Allford Hall Monaghan Morris start by contesting accepted norms, and mixing innovation and experience to deliver new models of housing for the 21st century. This results in architecture of the highest quality that is also cost effective and highly desirable; with many private housing developments sold before completion. In both the private or public sector we undertake research into the special qualities and traditions of a location, and investigate how people live in their homes and what they need. Research is also undertaken into how mixed-use architecture is managed and administered and how redundant buildings can be reinvented and re-used.
