07.02.2017 Split House featured in The Daily Telegraph's article 'Designing your forever home'

"A view of the future"! The Split House featured in last Saturday's Daily Telegraph Property supplement in an article focusing on ways in which homes can be designed to accommodate the changing needs of an aging owner/resident.

In designing the Split House, we worked hard alongside an incredibly focused client to create a home that would support the owner's changing needs without negatively effecting the quality of the design or the cost of the project.

19.01.2017 Matt Thompson's article on the 'What Clients think of Architects' report is published in the RIBA Journal

The RIBA report - What Clients think of Architects was published late in 2016. The report, based on the findings of the near 1000 strong clients who responded to the survey, provides a fantastic insight what is and isn't seen to be working well between clients and architects, and sets a path for those interested in improving that relationship. Repeated patterns, both positive and negative have emerged and been highlighted, with the raw data providing a large amount of more situation specific insight should architects be keen to dig.

The survey, data analysis and resulting reports and articles were the work of the RIBA Client Liaison Group.  alma-nac have been proud to play a part in this group's work.

The latest article, written by Matt Thompson has been published in the January 2017 Riba Journal.
