Background

The practice of Elder and Cannon was established in 1980. Its reputation has been built on achieving excellence over a diverse range of building types often in challenging and sensitive contexts. It has a strong design philosophy and seeks to provide each project with its own identity through creative solutions evolving these thoughtfully to meet and exceed client expectations.

Guided by a belief that the nature of our surroundings has a direct influence on our lives, we strive for quality in all aspects of our work.

We believe that the best architecture comes from working closely with our clients, encouraging a creative and collaborative atmosphere within our office and by questioning all that we do to ensure we achieve all that we can.
Our goal is to create buildings of design excellence that are intimately connected to their context and function, which are detailed and executed to the highest standard and represent best value.

Sustainability is at the heart of everything we do. Understanding that the earth’s resources are limited, we take seriously our responsibilities to minimise waste, energy loss and environmental damage associated with construction. In doing so, we recognise that sustainable development is not only an exercise in creating low energy buildings but also of social inclusion through the creation of well balanced communities and environments. The achievement of both aims is fundamental to a sustainable future and intrinsic to our work.
