Dualchas will approach each design afresh, and not come to any project with fixed ideas – only an ambition to design buildings that suit the context, the brief and the budget. Our range of designs and attention to detailing show a response not just to context and brief, but a desire to continually improve the quality of what we deliver.
Also known as “retrofit”, Dualchas has developed a strong portfolio of projects where we have given new life to old buildings by transforming its use, its performance and the interiors. Our approach is always to respect what was good about the existing, but try and bring an element of surprise and joy with our intervention.
Understanding the character of an area, the movement of traffic and people, as well as the cultural and natural environment, all contribute towards successful masterplanning. By focussing on the these elements masterplans can be created for urban or rural areas which ensure that the wider natural and built environment is enhanced by intervention rather than diminished, and that the best returns are given on the initial capital investment.
