Who we are

Established in 1957 as the Steensen Varming Mulcahy Partnership, we can proudly say that we have been designing innovative, sensitive solutions for an impressive client portfolio for more than 50 years. 

We have successfully brought the enduring principles of our heritage up to date through the collective wisdom of our dynamic team, delivering inventive, original and forward-thinking solutions, and driving every stage of the project forwards for successful and timely completion.

Building relationships is as important to us as designing buildings, so the team you meet at the initial interview stage will be the team you work with throughout the project. Every project we work on, from concept to completion, is led by one of our Directors.
