A consistent methodological approach is used for each project. ABGC’s portfolio illustrates the positive transformative impact of quality design achieved through their capacity for imaginative reuse and adaptation of existing buildings, with interior health, a focus on fabric design holisticity and of realising ever more climate sensitive outcomes while also working at a variety of scales and eras, from Canal architecture to Cafés to train stations to domestic buildings from 1790 to the present.
