About us


We are an RIBA chartered practice of architects in Cambridge, UK. Our small creative studio works with clients that have projects; on challenging sites, could benefit from our creative use of space, or share our interest in making buildings that engage with us.



Guided by a sustainability ethos, the studio have won local awards for both residential and mixed building use design commissions.


Our design approach is characterised by its creative approach, intelligent use of space and an empathetic use of materials to a given context. The application of technology and construction is a particular focus of our projects bringing visual appeal and technical clarity to designs. We aim to minimise and use materials to optimise a balance between environmental impact and performance in use. We use passive principles to benefit designs and these underpin building performance and inform architectural narratives. These qualities, coupled with the specifics of location, orientation, geometry, historical and local context and use, make every project unique.


Studio24 architects was founded by Mark Richards in 2012. Mark, a Chartered Architect since 1994, has extensive architectural design and delivery experience to benefit projects. He has been a director within international design practices, designing and leading large scale projects in the UK and overseas. He has a keen interest in mixed use building typologies, environmentally conscious building and an aptitude for simplifying complex problems. Mark was the RIBA elected member of the Cambridge City Design Review panel in 2017 and supports the local RIBA chapter; the Cambridge Association of Architects.
