The Company is staffed by a young and progressive, yet experienced team headed by the two Directors, Leon Trapp FRAIA and Di Lund FRAIA.  The Directors have successfully combined, over a number of years, the experience of a well-established Company with the vitality of fresh and appealing designs. The Directors have graduated from recognised Colleges or Universities and have been with the Company for over 30 years and 20 years respectively.

They are supported by a young and enthusiastic team of architects, interior designers, graduate architects and technicians who are committed to the company and to the architecture that we as a firm create.
