Who we are
We met in 2003 whilst working for Tasou Associates, started working together in 2006, got married in 2007 and set up Green & Teggin Architects in 2010.
We have lived in SE15 since 2005 and have two teenage children.
Most of our projects are residential extensions and refurbishments for first time clients.
We also have wide ranging experience with developer led residential and commercial projects, higher education projects, conservation, sustainability and energy efficient design.
Green & Teggin is an RIBA Chartered Practice, both directors are Chartered Architects and are registered with the Architects Registration Board. Jacqueline is listed on the RIBA Conservation Register. Thomas is training as a Retrofit Coordinator and has qualified as a Certified Passive House Designer (now lapsed).
We strive to uphold integrity, clarity and attention to detail in all our work. We have high architectural aspirations and apply them to every project. We always aim to enhance homes we work on; we personalise space and optimise budgets. Our skill lies in realising the potential of a property in keeping with client’s aesthetics, values and practical requirements.
We develop and evolve the project brief in close collaboration with our clients; we listen carefully to a your ideas, aims and requirements, and we use our knowledge and experience to synergise these into a design that raises your expectations and adds value.
Good quality and timely communication with our clients is very important to us. We don’t employ junior staff, so you can expect our full involvement and attention throughout your project. We run jobs separately, but we collaborate and take joint responsibility for our work.
Having work done on your own home can be stressful and disruptive. We pride ourselves on understanding the issues and problems clients will face through the various stages of a project. We aim to prepare you for the steps ahead and make the process as painless and smooth as possible.
We advocate for appropriate technology, doing things slowly and doing more with less; we like to draw by hand, and we think the most sustainable building is the one that already exists.
Demand reduction is very important to us, followed by building fabric and long term, holistic or “whole house” plans. Where appropriate, we attempt to persuade clients to phase or reduce the scope of projects.
