Since establishing a private practice in 1970 Charles Simon has pioneered and stressed several core themes:
- Green (ecological) architecture and planning.
- Livable environments which are responsive to people’s needs and engage their participation.

- The creation of a future heritage: timeless design which honours the past while looking to the future.
