What others have said

“Working with Keir helped us to dream a bigger dream……He is a skilled listener with highly developed people skills and was able to work with us all in a way in which we all felt our ideas were valued and included – and we are a very large, diverse and complicated group of people! Working with Keir is also an enormous amount of fun. He inspires rather than patronises. You have the sense that anything is possible and he is able to take a huge amount of information and make it work.”

Debbie Gordon – Head Teacher, Wallands School

“Keir is an outstanding individual in many respects – he is highly professional, an excellent team member and a reliable client interface…..he has a rare combination of technical, organisational and poetic sensibilities…”

Steve Tompkins – Founding Director, Haworth Tompkins Architects

“Keir’s proposals for the different ways in which the space could be changed and the impact that this could have on the way in which we lived in it were exciting and sometimes provocative. We enjoyed being challenged to consider new options and were impressed with the creative solutions he found.”
