New Practices #82: Coombes:Everitt Architects

  • Comment

The latest in a series of practice profiles looking at architects who have recently decided to go it alone either through choice or redundancy

Coomes:Everitt Architects, Winchcombe, Cheltenham

Founded: October 2010

Main people: Toby Coombes and John Everitt

Where have you come from?
Toby worked at Beswick Partnership, Tewkesbury and John was a partner at Evans Jones, Cheltenham. We met on the local Design Review Panel.

What work do you have and what projects are you looking for?
We’re working on a Passivhaus for a private client, a number of sustainable housing schemes for housing associations in rural areas, and converting redundant office space in listed buildings into residential units. This, coupled with the refurbishment of a boutique hotel, makes for a busy practice.

What are your ambitions?
We’re aiming to grow to a medium-sized practice, providing a bespoke service, while maintaining the agility to respond to clients’ needs. We also want to promote sustainable buildings by championing Passivhaus and emerging techniques, such as off-site construction. We’ll continue to work with complementary disciplines and specialist partners who share our appetite for innovation.

How optimistic are you? Choosing to establish a new practice in the current economic climate was a gamble, but in our first year we are set to be significantly ahead of our planned targets, which is great. We have already recruited more technical and admin staff and are really optimistic that we will continue to grow.
