SMR is an RIBA Chartered Practice.

SMR’s Future Vision is:


Our Mission is to:


We are forward-thinking, cooperative and proactive. We believe that progressive architecture, founded on the principles of modernism has a positive influence on the social and environmental aspects of our lives.

We are not product or image architects with a pre-prepared prescription for all project types: our preoccupation is with architecture that is coherent, both intellectually and emotionally, from concept through to detail.

Our core aim is to nurture our team allowing them to develop in a way that maximizes their potential.  We demonstrate this through our Values; positivity and collaboration, practicality and creativity, responsiveness and acting with integrity.

We seek advances that stretch the boundaries of construction techniques, materials and sustainable environmental practice; to provide our clients with buildings that are an inspiration to users and provide a strong sense of identity.

Louis Sullivan and later Frank Lloyd Wright’s principles of “form follows function” sum up SMR’s practices perfectly as we produce built environments that reflect their purpose. In our book, good design should be stimulating, welcoming and give a sense of wellbeing.  It should use resources effectively, create space imaginatively, and facilitate the required function; whilst being aesthetically pleasing, respectful of context and providing value for money in both capital and lifecycle costs.

We only undertake work we know we can deliver and we don’t make unrealistic promises, but we make sure projects are delivered to a high standard with many new clients becoming repeat clients.

Throughout the practice we encourage a constant exchange of ideas and concepts and foster an interest in problem-solving at all levels.
