Enhancing environments and enriching lifestyles through design
Based in Eye in Suffolk, Gorniak & McKechnie provides a full range of architectural, design and building services for residential projects, including new builds, extensions and renovations.
Established in 1985 we are a family practice, with extensive knowledge and experience of both historic polite and vernacular building, enlivened by a keen interest and knowledge of modern design.
We offer a friendly personal service to deliver bespoke solutions that utilise our understanding of East Anglian traditional materials and techniques.
We aim to create spaces that add value and enrich the lives of all who experience them.
We believe that it is possible to enhance some historic architecture with the piquancy of modern additions responding to current more open ways of life.
As part of this we promote solutions that respect the nature of the existing building's fabric (breathable or non-breathable) to highly insulate appropriately to reduce heat gains and losses, to reduce the project's carbon footprint by the use of sustainable materials, and heating and lighting systems that do not rely on fossil fuel.
