Our progressive office, established in 2010, focuses on the enhancement of experience and relationship to place. We provide services for Architecture, Interior Design, Furniture Design and Landscape Architecture consultation, believing the unification of these elements maintains the strongest composition.
Our work ranges from small scale residential and commercial extensions to multi residential developments and commercial accommodation buildings as well as private houses and furniture design.
Client interaction and communication allows each project to have a unique and focused result.
The functional performance of a building is a crucial part of the design, through its planning, breathing, lighting and sustainability while beauty, presence and vitality are key elements. This harmony brings a heightened sense of 'ourselves' within a tailored space.
While autonomy, beauty and atmosphere seem increasingly hard to find in the built environment, it is this that drives Honeyman + Smith to develop designs that once again awaken the senses and promote the precision of architecture and the relationship to people and context.
Strategic thinking is the key element for any project. See: Strategic Thinking.
