About Us

Research + Design have been in practice for over 14 years and completed over 150 projects working on projects throughout the southwest uk and London and abroad. Research + Design won The Abercrombie Award 2011 for Best Minor Development (Home Extension) and Best Community Project 2017 (Childrens Theatre). The foundation of my career was formed while working for well known architects and artists including Sverre Fehn, Renzo Piano and Vito Acconci in Oslo, New York, Paris and London. Research + Design take on all manner of projects though also have a keen interest in biophilic design and permaculture - these are both sustainable types of design that have a love of nature at heart and endeavour to protect and enhance the plants and biodiversity on the site. Biophilic design endeavours to increase the amount of plants and local wildlife to what was on the site prior to the project. Many of the projects I work on are close collaborations with self builders and Clients that like to get involved in the design. I am currently working on projects in Worton - Wiltshire (AONB), Kilve - Somerset (next to Quontock AONB), Gerrards Cross -South Bucks and Newton Ferrers(waterfront) - Devon, a highly sustainable house in Dartmoor National Park with Passivehaus detailing, another highly sustainable house in Topsham and an extension on a grade 2 listed house in Devon.
