Michael Collins Architects
12 Purwell Lane
We are an award-winning practice based in Hertfordshire and London. We specialise in progressive, sustainable architecture and are skilled at delivering exceptional projects within challenging sites. We put a strong emphasis on the inventive use of building materials, the qualities of light and the relationship between a building and its surroundings. We consider these issues to be more important than working in a particular style and hope that each project will be an original interpretation of the client, site, brief and budget.
For us, practice is understood as a range of activities which are all necessary to each other – design of buildings, fittings and furniture; making buildings, installations and models; research and writing about architecture; collaborations with craftsmen, artists and consultants. Through this we constantly strive to enrich our designs through a broad and contemporary line of enquiry.
