A key element of Atkey’s service is proactive consultancy and design. With our understanding of architectural detail in general, the shifting influences affecting the evolution of classical designs and our appreciation of the best of modern design, many of our clients see us as a vital partner in the creative process, whether it be for conservation, restoration or new build.
Providing authentic and accurate period detail
We advise on the selection of appropriate period joinery detail for projects based on a number of factors, including the period and style of the property, its relative status, the architect where known and hierarchical differentiation within a property. When putting forward our schemes we not only consider the aesthetics but also the practicalities of the door or moulding designs. We issue detailed drawings of our joinery designs in advance of manufacture.
