Residential

Biscoe Wilson Architects have developed an enviable portfolio of innovative residential projects ranging from adaptive reuse of existing houses, to new individual private residences, apartment buildings, public housing and mixed used developments.

The practice is not an advocate of the “House Style” but prefer to adopt a phenomenological approach. Each project is designed according to an iterative design approach involving detailed brief development, site analysis and testing design solutions against the brief. At the core of all design solutions is an environmentally sustainable design assessment.
