OFFERING A HELPING HAND TO SMALLER PRACTICES

LETTERS

Dilemma is too strong a word, but the situation is intriguing: what to do with the arrival of domestic extension and refurbishment projects which are too small for our office to take on?

We are a thriving multi-disciplinary practice specialising in new-build houses, domestic interior design, furniture and lighting. But five years ago - like so many young practices - we began at the very bottom of the architectural ladder, taking on £30-50,000 extensions and hoping that - with finished work under our belts - the practice could grow to greater things.

The majority of this work was passed to us by practices who, like us today, were relieved they no longer had to try and finance a practice from the tiny fees such work commands.

Now we would like to return the favour - to pass on the baton to other start-up teams prepared climb that ladder.

We are based in central London and almost all our work is located in the London boroughs. If you think you fit the bill then get in touch - e-mail us at mail@enclosure. org. uk Mark Dyson, Enclosure Architects, London
