Practice Ideology

Coda Architects have a strong design ethos. We recognise our professional duty to deliver creative, workable and cost effective solutions for our clients. The practice is driven by a process of analysis of the specific requirements of the project, not a predetermined style. We create buildings that are tailored to their location and brief. We understand the importance of dialogue with the people who commission our buildings, ensuring that the delivery of a project aligns with the delivery of expectations and requirements. The practice fully commits itself to any project we undertake, for the benefit of the project and our clients.
