OPEN planning

We have over 25 years planning experience, and are attuned to the requirements of local authorities, which ensures our clients a smooth journey through the planning process. We pride ourselves on the ability to produce designs which very often result in planning approval.

OPEN commercial

We maximise the use of the space with a commercial, ethical and ecological hand, ensuring our clients gain maximum potential on each project. Design is key in this process.

We have respect for our clients’ requirements and needs. We listen to you and produce the design that is right for you.
