Other Studio Architects is an architecture and design practice based in South London and North Norfolk.

The practice works across the UK to create unique and sustainable spaces for living, playing, working and learning. Our projects vary in nature and scope from creating homes for families, to helping communities realise a vision, to exhibition design and the arts.

As a studio we seek to create environmentally positive and flexible future proof work which is rooted in the lives of those who are inhabiting our spaces and the communities in which they are located.

We believe strongly in the accessibility of well designed architecture and champion wider access into the architectural profession. You can read about our Ground Up! initiative here

Teaching forms a central part of the practice, helping to promote accessibility and creating a space for exploration and ideas.

Other Studio Architects is an RIBA Chartered Practice and is a supporter of Open City.
