  • Practice

  • HH+ have a passion for contemporary design and rigorous detailing, ensuring that all of the projects that emerge from the studio are thoroughly analysed and sensitively considered in response to their context. Paramount to the studio’s ambition is the research and development of innovative building materials and the use of robust technical details that stand the test of time.

    HH+ work across a range of project typologies and scales, from bespoke furniture design through to masterplanning. Projects include; the feasibility and technical study of the re-use of a collection of limestone and slate buildings in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the Lake District; and the wholesale renovation of an 1850’s restaurant in Herne Hill, including the refurbishment of its Locally-Listed bubble-fronted façade.

    Alongside Francis Keane Architects, HH+ won the 2017 Morrison’s Island International Design Competition in Cork, Ireland, for the masterplan of a new mixed-use public space and flood defense, which was judged by a panel including Yvonne Farrell of Grafton Architects. Their proposal has subsequently been given a Special Mention in the Architecture Association of Ireland (AAI) Awards 2018.
