Architecture

Our approach is influenced by striking the balance between creative design and understanding and delivering the goals of our clients and their stakeholders. By listening intently to their needs and understanding their organisations, we are able to add value, as well as architectural inspiration, to our client’s aspirations. As well as creating great spaces we are also passionate about creating places that enhance the quality of life whether it’s through working, living, learning or playing.

Interiors/Fit Out

We work collaboratively with clients to form a clear, detailed brief by building an insight into the way they interact with their surroundings. Developing an understanding how they inhabit their buildings; the physical and emotional relationships between people and place; the business drivers that need to be considered, how the values or ethos of the company or the branding needs to be represented by the building interior. These are the principles that guide us in our approach to creating interiors that provide for both function and longevity.

Masterplanning

When masterplanning we are driven to create sustainable spaces that enrich the experience of the outdoor environment. However, there is much more to it than designing exceptional spaces between buildings. It requires an awareness of many other factors that are not always complementary; contextual, social, environmental and economic. It starts with a visionary approach and results in a framework for making places.

Workplace

The workplace is in transition. The advance of technology has resulted in fundamental changes to working culture. Performance is no longer only measured by attendance but by output or results. Services or tasks may be best completed in a certain location, some must be done at a certain time, whilst others need a set time and place. Workplace design is evolving so that it becomes an enabler, creating a variety of work settings that bring out the best in organisation’s greatest assets – people. Working environments have a major impact upon the wellbeing and therefore the productivity of occupants. As businesses react to the differing needs of their employees, their customers and the implications these changes have, we are perfectly placed to understand these impacts and how they need to be addressed and delivered to transform business premises.

Sectors

We have extensive experience in commercial workplace from base build to fitting out; new buildings and re-fitting existing ones. Seymour Architecture also have experience of delivering projects in the retail and residential sectors, including student residential. Between us we have some eighty years of experience, delivering in that time projects in sectors such as office, industry, retail, education, sports, recreation, leisure, healthcare, residential and specialist residential care facilities.

Research and Development

We are members of the British Council for Offices (BCO) and we always strive to keep abreast of developing movements that influence design and delivery across all sectors. The effect that buildings have on the wellbeing of occupants and BIM are two areas that we are particularly interested in. This R&D is influencing our holistic design approach for workplace design, which is centred on human factors, responding to both the physical and psychological with a focus on business needs and productivity.

Wellbuilding

Collaboration between professionals working within the field of Environmental Psychology and those that design it, has begun to bring wellbeing to the forefront of the design process and recognises the relationship and interplay between users and the built environments they inhabit.  The movement for greater wellbeing and productivity is the driving force behind the transformation of working practices to become more agile and flexible with more space for creativity and collaboration. Seymour Architecture have continued investment in research and development aligning ourselves with the latest approaches, with an in depth knowledge and understanding of how aspects of built environment, internal environment quality and working methods impact employee wellbeing and business productivity

BIM

Upon its foundation, Seymour Architecture invested in software to enable Building Information Modelling (BIM) and coordination, utilising Revit for in-house efficiencies. With its extensive experience and in-depth knowledge the company has established BIM Protocols ensuring compliance with the relevant parts BS and PAS standards necessary to achieve outputs consistent with BIM Level 2.

Working with the relevant documents and guidance, we have embedded the BIM processes into all aspects of our business. We have developed working protocols and templates that ensure the elements affecting the architectural design are inherent in our output. These protocols are the foundation for our targeted ISO9001 certification. BIM offers a platform to allow information sharing; improving consistency, communication and understanding between all parties involved, allowing informed decision making, and increased quality control  throughout the process. The use of BIM does not cease at completion but instead can be utilised through the building’s life and ultimate demolition. Seymour Architecture assists their clients to ensure the BIM process offers them best value when assessing their overall project objectives. This may be simple benefits such as 3D visualisation and increased coordination, or by taking a holistic approach and reviewing opportunities for standardisation across projects, facilities management, and incorporation of 4D (time) or 5D (cost) data, model analysis.

Practice

Our practice is our people. Our main studio is based in what was the first fire station in Morpeth, now fitted out to practice what we preach; agile workspaces set up to create the most conducive atmosphere. Located in one of Morpeth’s quiet lanes in the heart of the market town, on the East Coast main line and the A1.

Our office in Middlesbrough looks to achieve the same balance as part of the exciting Boho Zone; the digital, creative and business hub of the Tees Valley, benefiting from collaborative spaces, indoors and out, and in proximity of the rail and A66/A19 corridor.

People

With a well-balanced with a range of complementary skills, our team share the same values, the same goals, to provide our clients with the best possible service whilst exercising the full range of their talents to create innovative, cost effective and sustainable solutions.
