Our proven track record has been established since we formed in 2010. We hone our broad skillset to enhance every project we undertake, with precision and craft at the forefront of our unique offering.
We’re experts, not jack of all trades.
Our team, with its varying range of skills enables us to offer a full architectural design service under one roof. We adapt and draw upon our specialisms to ensure the right people undertake the right tasks to complete the project in hand.
This approach means a turn-key solution can be provided, where we’re able to take a project from inception, through to the all important finishing touches.
The Way We Work
Understanding you and your requirements is imperative to achieving the best results. That’s why we listen to you first, and create second. Dissecting the brief, and interrogating the various solutions means we always aim to exceed your expectations. We love nothing more than collaborating closely with you to create beautiful spaces that can be lived in.
Our design style is considered and tailored to not only the brief, but also the site, the surroundings, and if necessary your existing property. All with the mindset and knowledge of the finer details involved when designing, building and planning your property, or home improvements.
We appreciate the complexity of the process involved, and are on hand to guide you through every stage. Our straightforward, honest and approachable service is paramount to the success of every project. Something we’re very proud of. Communicating with you in layman’s terms is at the heart of our ethos, meaning we leave the technical mumbo jumbo to the engineers and builders.
Considering your needs, your budget and the process involved, our service is tailored at all times with you at the centre of our thinking.
Cameron is to Bastion, as what Woody is to Toy Story. A fundamental team player whose creativity is second to none. Bastion’s chief of design, it is he who will be the one to kick-start a project. Whether it’s a large department store or a residential project, the one thing Cameron has up his sleeve is an innate ability to show a client exactly what they want, even when they didn’t know it’s what they wanted. Armed with a pen and a pad, it is his concise approach and desire to create solutions with a wow factor that means he always exceeds a clients vision, and delivers on the Bastion promise.
It’s her artistic flair and keen eye for the finer details, which make Isabel an integral member of the Bastion team. Although her role means she is focused on the finishes, she is instrumental in establishing the right ambiance, tone and vision for the internal spaces of any Bastion project. A designer who doesn’t dictate, but listens to clients, and responds with considerations aimed at exceeding the brief at every corner. Experienced working with large retailers, Isabel is passionate about creating spaces that feel comfortable for the everyday activity that happens within them.
Russell with his steely gaze, and teddy bear persona we know that every Bastion client is in good hands. That’s because if Russell doesn’t know how it goes together, then we’re pretty sure it just doesn’t fit. In fact, his industry know-how is so strong that some may think of him as a walking encyclopaedia of technical details. Russell is Bastion’s man who oversees every project from planning, through to construction, where his broad knowledge of the complex processes involved make him an asset to every client, whether it’s a shopping centre, or a high-spec residential build.
During the vital, discovery, concept and planning stages, you’re in good hands when working with Emily. Her extensive knowledge and experience in the residential sector enables her to play a vital role in helping the team produce schemes which push the boundaries of planning. Ones that create beautiful, and functional spaces. Emily never ceases to impress with her wonderful penmanship and ability to produce beautiful hand drawings during the design process, and is a member of the Architects Registration Board (ARB) and Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA).
Some may say Keith is the class clown, but when it comes to people he is as comfortable with them as he is with a pencil in his hand. Keith’s ability isn’t just focused on making things look great on paper, although he can make a shed look like a million quid. It’s his focus on the business that really makes him an integral cog in the Bastion machine. Keith founded the business with a passion and desire that is demonstrated by his can do attitude, where his uncanny attention to detail means he has the ability to learn and adapt quickly for any situation he and his clients find themselves in.
Experts in our Field
Skilled and adept to approach every challenge, our proven track record is testament to the service we give. We deal directly with various authorities to ensure project completion, including successfully obtaining planning permission for sites that often combine intricate designs, in areas with strict planning policies.
We’re proud of our reputation, and have built longstanding relationships with property developers, builders, design partners and fellow architects who view our knowledge, approach and technical design delivery as fundamental to the success of any project.
What Our Clients Say
I was recommended Bastion to design our house plans and couldn't be happier with the service. We are delighted with our final design - it's nothing like the design we had thought of, it's so much better and that's one good reason to use these guys!
Highly recommend this company. I found Keith really easy to work with and he willingly changed plans, offering advice to ensure we achieved what we wanted. Planning was achieved with no issues and we are looking forward to starting.
Keith provided lightening fast service in helping us by providing required elevation drawings for heritage, design and access statements in order to submit applications for Listed Building Consent for our grade II listed timber frame thatched cottage.
Bastion is an excellent Architecture company with an eye for detail. This business was recommended to us by other professionals in the industry.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Cameron and the team for any residential building design project. Throughout he was attentive to our needs and did everything within the realms of possibility to make it happen.
