Design Ethos

Ainsworth Spark Associates is guided by the knowledge that the quality of surroundings can enrich the quality of lives. Buildings that are memorable, viewed with affection and with a strong identity and place have the ability to inspire and lift aspirations and expectations.

We work in the spirit of enquiry, challenging preconceptions, testing convention with a duty to design well at any scale.

Our work relies on creative collaboration within our studios and externally with our clients, the community, consultants and sub-contractors.

In construction, we recognise, understand and respect our precious natural resources as well as the practical restraints of cost and time.

With our strong track record, we are well placed to face the challenges of the future and the changing face of architecture and technology with imagination and sensitivity.
Social and environmental awareness and responsibility are at the heart of the practice culture as it evolves to meet the challenges of the next 50 years. Design and sustainability cannot be separated and are integral in our approach to producing buildings with a light touch on the planet.
