Testimonials
ZMMA Architects
“Simon Thomas Pirie (STP) quickly tunes-into the design approach for a particular project and as a consequence we always have very enjoyable design sessions with them. When an opportunity came up for ZMMA and STP to pitch together for some public space projects in North Dorset, we worked jointly to win three projects. STP’s inventiveness and ingenuity led to us being able to create exciting installations together, for example, some complex-curved, significant oak public seating pieces.”

Hutchinson Kivotos Architects
“Public art is a way of adding quality to a space and creating a focal point. This shopping arcade had been designed in the 80's and needed to be shown a little love, so we asked Simon Thomas Pirie to design us seating people could love – with a love seat. We wanted something functional that had a sense of craft and joy, and he has delivered.”
Gavin Hutchinson, Hutchinson Kivotos Architects
Testimonials
Searchfield Homes Ltd
“Simon Thomas Pirie designed a kitchen for the Thurlestone House property, a kitchen that was a stunning design in its own right but also really made sense from each of the 4 key spaces that connected to it. The ground floor of the house flows seamlessly from room to room, with the kitchen forming a dramatic centre-piece.”
Andrew Searchfield, Seachfield Homes Ltd
