Who we are
We met in 2003 whilst working for the same practice, got married in 2007 and set up Green & Teggin Architects in 2010. We have lived together in SE15 since 2005 and have two children.
Most of our projects are residential extensions and refurbishments for first time clients. However, we also have wide ranging experience with developer lead residential, developer lead commercial, educational and public sector projects, sustainable and energy efficient design.
We believe that developing the brief with our clients is key to a successful project. We listen carefully to a your ideas and requirements, then we use our knowledge and experience to evolve these into a design that goes beyond your expectations.
We prefer to sketch and design by hand; as this allows us to produce design iterations quickly, and we find clients and planners more receptive to soft line drawings. We are able to complement this with 3D computer visualisations, CAD technical drawings, specifications, schedules, energy models, and basic cost plans where required.
As a team we have complementary skills to bring our work. We run jobs separately to retain the initial vision and ensure continuity, however we take joint responsibility for our work and collaborate on any difficult issues. There are only the two of us, so you can be assured of full director involvement throughout your project. Good communication with our clients is key and we aim to respond to job queries within one working day.
We strive to uphold clarity of purpose, a high level of craft, attention to detail and integrety to all our work . We have high architectural aspirations and apply them to every project, whatever the size. We always aim to enhance homes we work on, free space and optimise budgets. Our skill lies in realising the potential of a property in keeping with client’s aesthetic values and practical requirements.
Having work done on your own home can be stressful and disruptive to family life. Having two children ourselves, and having gone through two major home renovations, we understand the issues and problems you will face. we aim to prepare you for the steps ahead and make the process as painless as possible.
We are happy to advise on space saving ideas and will attempt to persuade a client to reduce the scope of a scheme where we feel this is appropriate, sometimes eliminating the need for costly building work altogether.
