penman | architects experience is centred on practical building knowledge developed from overseeing projects from inception

through to completion.


The practice’s work is enriched by historical context, art and a responsive dialogue with the city. The history of the setting and the traditions associated with the environment allows us to embrace the ‘found’ to form newly interpreted interventions, coupled with a shared view of the client’s vision.
