we see no reason why architects cannot pool their resources and work together. We are working in collaboration with others in such a manner, including overseas.


WHAT WILL THE NEXT ‘BIG THING’ BE IN THE INDUSTRY?


If I knew that, I’d be doing it! Joking aside, as a progressive practice we are always searching for that unique quality that puts us a little bit above the rest in order to attract exciting and innovative projects. We’re currently evolving our ‘STREET- LAB’ concept, which is a new model which will increase values and extend the life and vitality of existing retail parks.

WHAT ARE YOUR HOPES FOR 2017 AND BEYOND IN TERMS OF YOURSELF AND YOUR PRACTICE?


The plan is to just keep pushing forward to the next level. Staff numbers have doubled over the last few years and we are


Architecture isn’t easy and we shouldn’t simplify it – the more complex the project, the more satisfying the outcome

continuing to progress in a positive manner. We also have a number of concepts based around the integration of retail with sport and leisure that we are working on with a team of leading specialists in their individ- ual fields. Overall it’s currently a really exciting time for me and the LK2 team, and we’re looking forward to further success in 2017 and beyond. 
