archangels celebrates five years!
The journey began five years ago in challenging times. Two determined individuals shared a dream of crafting beautiful, sustainable buildings and an ethical architectural practice in Brighton. To applaud the continuing growth of the business and give a huge thank you to all our clients, the team and professional colleagues who have helped to shape the practice, we hosted a celebratory 5-year anniversary party. It was fun!
Mindful of our responsibilities, we organised a raffle and successfully fundraised for Shelter at our new studios. The event was attended by 85 invited guests embracing current and past clients, consultants, press, architects, designers, contractors and lecturers.
An extending hand of gratitude and warmth to all those who graced us with their presence by making it such a special occasion and to those who were unable to make the event but who have supported the practice over the last few years and sent their best wishes.
Together we raised a fantastic £500 for Shelter!
Thank you to these wonderful local businesses who kindly donated our raffle prizes:
Albourne Estate – who donated 3 of their award winning wines
Riverford Organic Farms – who donated a hamper of wonderful organic produce
Heather Edwards – who donated a back, neck and head massage
Whirligig - who donated a wooden board game
Quaff Fine Wine Merchants – who donated a voucher to spend in their shop
Alex Johnson – who donated a stunning silk screen print and whose artwork currently adorns the studio walls website
And, thank you to Harry Ramsden of Brighton who supplied the fish and chip supper - delicious!
Our thanks also go out to the talented Alan Bromley, for photographing the festivities. Music and art form an important part of the team’s working environment and was reflected throughout the evening. Anita Beverton played enchanting solo violin for the first half of the evening and Ian Parker took to the decks for some uplifting tunes during the second half. Thank you both!
Pete Sonntag was officially congratulated for his promotion to Associate.
Thank you to all for a wonderful first five years! Here’s to many more.
