We are Lane Architects Cornwall.
Lane Architects behaves boldly. Working for clients here in the UK and in Europe, we are not afraid to take a chance, to think creatively and put into practise the passion we have for great building design. We pride ourselves on having the experience and natural intuition to know how to make a house, office, or creative space feel homely, inspiring and uplifting.
We blend creative, innovative design with the latest technologies and materials delivering projects for our clients with sustainability embedded firmly throughout our core.
Light That Transforms
We take it for granted, it exists as a function of our natural world, every day. But, when used creatively, light can truly transform. It can transform a space from feeling unwelcoming and ‘cold’ to being captivating and remarkable. That’s why when we design a space it’s of upmost importance to think about how daylight enters and how it affects the orientation of a room. When a space is void of light we’ll consider how artificial lighting can create warmth and bring it to life.
As the ‘Master of Modernism’, Le Corbusier once said:
“Architecture is the masterly, correct and magnificent play of masses brought together in light”
Before embarking on a project we question it’s feasibility for long-term sustainability: be that the environmental impact of the way the property generates and uses energy, the building materials we use or the surroundings in which it sits in.
We are proud to be an eco-conscious organisation; building properties which are all recognised as low carbon efficient. We’ll consider energy-saving systems such as solar panels, rainwater harvesting, ground and air source heat pumps and grey water recycling.
We also understand cost. We know it’s a big deal. If you are embarking on a self-build project then this is likely to be one of the biggest cost commitments of your life. It’s therefore important to get it right; to make the right decisions at the right time without compromising on quality and ultimately, what it is you set out to achieve.
We also know it can be stressful. Throughout the build journey, we pride ourselves on not only being able to deliver a client brief but being a trusted source of guidance and honest advice.
