Allford Hall Monaghan Morris makes buildings that are satisfying and enjoyable to use, beautiful to look at and easy to understand. They design very different buildings for very different people to use in very different ways.

They believe in making places as well as buildings, that work over time and have lasting qualities intrinsic to their architecture. For Allford Hall Monaghan Morris, a project begins with a strategy, not a design solution. This strategy arises from understanding the fundamental drivers of a brief and the parameters, problems and opportunities it represents.

They are part of a team, but most importantly they enjoy working with anybody who shares the belief that architecture can make a positive, inspirational but never overbearing contribution to the world around us.
