At AAB architects our practice ethos stems from the following values:

01 Community & Social Engagement – Through working closely with charities, community groups, local authorities and schools, AAB are primarily focused on creating better places and buildings for our communities, engaging with real issues that have positive social, economic and cultural value.

02 Historical & Contextual Understanding – Our interest and continual research into the evolution of buildings and places feeds into an on- going pool of knowledge that actively contributes to our architectural design and practice.

03 Low Impact – We aspire to provide affordable, durable, low-carbon buildings. To achieve this we adopt a rigorous approach to design, coupled with extensive experience in construction and management. We re-use, repair and conserve where possible, to reduce the embodied carbon of construction and minimise waste, and retrofit to reduce energy in use.

We enjoy positive working relationships with clients, consultants and contractors, in order to achieve the best quality for all budgets. Our projects range widely in scale, but all share a sensitive response to context and need.
