Design Services

The studio draws upon its technical building knowledge and recent experience to realise contemporary design solutions. We provide our client's with a hands-on, professional, and tailored design approach, founded on the RIBA's tried and tested project work stages.

Our design process focuses on future pragmatic responses that help reduce a project's environmental impact. We focus on getting the basics right, designing healthy buildings, to create uplifting and rewarding spaces that can positively reduce a reliance on energy and carbon intensive solutions.

Fabric First at Nelson Court by studio24 architects


Over the last six years the studio has been working predominantly with property developers and private clients, preparing designs to planning and technical designs for construction. The studio has won local design and construction awards for 'Best Small Development of the Year', 'Best Conservation, Alteration or Extension of an Existing Building' and was recently a shortlisted finalist in the East Region LABC Building Excellence Awards for 2019. We recently completed the remodelling and extension of a Grade II Listed cottage, and attained planning consent to transform a 1970's bungalow we've knick named 'Hidden House' that is the home of a young Cambridge family. Other projects include designs to remodel a post war detached 1930's suburban house 'S House' and two further designs for contemporary extensions to new homes in Cambridge. Our willingness to collaborate has recently been demonstrated through development of technical designs of a 5,000 sqm self storage facility in Brentford, London.

Development isn't easy and requires an investment of money and time, which is where, as a chartered practice we can help you make the right choices, to get the best from your project.
