About Innes Architects
Architecture to inspire, for enjoyment, for community, working with context and with nature
We practice architecture because we enjoy creation through collaboration. We are committed to working with our clients, communities, charities, educational and arts organisations and to promoting sustainable design.
We have a consistent procedure for each project:
- Patient building of the brief, involving a lot of research and a lot of listening;
- Thorough study of site and surroundings, local materials and building techniques;
- Creative vision reinforced by logical analysis;
- Close collaboration with clients, consultants and contractors;
- Intelligent engineering, carefully assessed where innovation is applied.
Throughout each project, we listen carefully to our clients and explain our proposals clearly. This ensures each project is free to evolve into a unique design that represents all those involved in the process of its birth, development and future use. We promise the highest standards of architectural creativity.
We are members of The Green Register, the Association for Environmentally-Conscious Building and Cornwall Sustainable Buildings Trust. We support sustainable practices and encourage environmentally benign architecture. Mark is a Lecturer in Architectural Design and Architectural Technology at the University of Plymouth, and has been a visiting lecturer at Cambridge University and Oxford Brookes University.
