In each and every project we aim to not only meet, but build upon our clients own expectations and aspirations, offering value added design innovation and management expertise that only a longstanding architectural practice can provide.


Through our almost 100 year history we well understand the realities and constraints of each particular commercial project. Working alongside our clients, Totem Studio will manage & lead your project and your vision through to built reality, in turn allowing you the freedom to best manage and lead your organisation.

In the very beginnings of a project we set out to ensure clarity and confidence with the three critical aspects of - budget, brief, and timeline. The architects, and design professionals of our practice possess the skills and expertise to lead a consultant team, & coordinate with outside parties, whilst managing a typically compact programme and monitor costs through the full length of the project. We constantly confer, confirm and update our clients so they are informed of developments at each and every stage.

In this way Totem Studio has, through our many years, developed a number of long term, multi-project client relationships which stand as testament to our ability to lead a project over its many particular hurdles to its timely completion and the great satisfaction of clients brief and budget.
