LHC has transformed in recent years from an architectural practice into today’s multi-skilled design company, working collaboratively across five core disciplines – urban design, architecture, landscape architecture, interior design, graphic design.
Late last year we changed our name to LHC Design to better reflect this range of creative services. Design is fundamental to everything we do, so we’re delighted to now unveil our new logo, which our graphics team have redesigned. They’ve taken our well-recognised green square icon and refreshed it in line with our name change, while keeping our brand recognition. Read more about the Graphics team here.
In addition to our new logo and new name, here’s a quick reminder of the other changes we made in October last year.
New ownership team: We broadened the leadership of the business to better reflect our core skills. Our leadership team now spreads LHC’s ownership more widely and equally across nine Directors and Associate Directors.
New studio: We opened a brand new studio in the heart of Cornwall at Victoria, led by Glayne Price. We’ve worked for many years on some landmark projects in the county and we’re busy becoming a full and active members of the Cornish business community as we take forward two significant projects – the West Carclaze Garden Village, and a 500 home extension to Truro at Langarth.
