A massive congratulations to Studio LIME Ltd‘s very own Alice Barriball, for
Studio Lime have offered a seamless approach to design. We wanted an Architect with imagination, flare and practicality (a hard combination) and found it in Studio Lime, they listened to our ideas and created a striking entrance to the school which incorporated everything we wanted and more. Iain Martin’s knowledge in the field of architecture, planning and building is apparent and we felt assured by his expertise and design knowhow.
During Khalifa University project RSP engaged Studio Lime for their expertise in the design of laboratories and workshops. Iain and his team managed successfully to guide the department heads of the engineering and medical school throughout the design process and finalize the brief in a very complex and very fast track project. Studio Lime delivered a very thorough and precise package including layouts, equipment schedule and room data sheets. RSP and the client were very pleased with the performance and we are looking forward to work again with Iain and his team.
