Pike Partners - Design & Build

The Pike Partnership practice philosophy entails creative but practical solutions to design problems supported by a framework of contemporary detailing. Where possible, and client allowing, there is a willingness for experimentation. We believe a building must work as well as looking good. The practice aims to provide a perfect marriage between design flair, technical competence and building experience.
