Scott Worsfold Associates
Scott Worsfold Associates is a multi-disciplinary practice made up of chartered architects, urban designers and specialists in historic buildings. It is this combination of skills that enables us to take the genesis of a new place creation and to plan its vision. This complete ability has resulted in many design awards and many of our past projects are featured as exemplar in current national and local design guidance.
From urban expansions, new towns or villages, care and sheltered communities and then individual bespoke homes, every master stroke of each design creation is produced with skill, attention to detail and the needs of the client. We also regularly create projects situated within conservation areas and other sensitive historic locations.
Attention to Detail
Our client base is extensive and our projects cover much of the UK. We work with many landed estates, national house builders, local developers, large development funds, housing associations and private individuals to realise their vision and development needs.
Good design can not only pass through the planning system with less contention, but can better the chances of consent. A well designed place can enhance development values and enable a place and its product to be more viable and desirable to all.
Through the ever changing attitudes of local opinion, central government and the planning system we aim, through careful design to figure all into a submission which is complete, considered and erudite.
We always consider a site’s contextual opportunities and try to ensure that the first dialogue and graphic explanation of the project is tabled with exceptional thoroughness and skilled vision.
Maintaining and promoting a scheme from its initial concept to its final and complete design submission can be demanding. We regularly engage community consultation alongside any dialogue with the local planning authority.
We always sponsor a coherent integrated design solution and integrate, from an early stage, all the many layers of design that will ultimately feed into the final design solution.
Impressions and Visions
We have a track record of delivering exceptionally well designed schemes whilst being mindful of the relationship between value and cost. We understand the relationship between build cost, a viable scheme and the client’s needs.
We pride ourselves on the quality of our graphic presentations and appreciate there is invariably only one chance at a first impression. Tabling your project in its best light and most convincing manner, with skill, design flair and graphic expertise is our forte.
Each of our projects invariably receives a selection of our fine art visualisations. These are done by us and can be produced very early in the design process or within the final stages of design. Giving character, identity and a vision for a place is an exceptionally potent part of any of our design submissions and one which not only impresses but one which aids support.
The practice has a commitment to producing the best urban design and to try to fulfil the real potential of any site such that the environ created is a characterful, enduring and successful.
In order to meet the needs of our ever expanding population, new housing needs to be provided. The skill is to interface that growth with a design that succeeds through its critique and succeeds to a place that is built.
