We are an integrated design and architecture studio based in London and working internationally

Our practice is founded in material and cultural research with a singular approach to design, one that marries analysis with a consideration of the emotional impact of each project. We take ideas as seriously as feelings and find solutions that are intellectually rigorous yet effortless and simple. The passion here is to create an environment of open conversation with our clients and collaborators with a focus towards the Arts and wellbeing.

The quality of the Studio's work is established from the agglomeration of Jenny Jones’ status as a chartered architect and a visiting lecturer on the MA interior design program at the Royal College of Art, who trained in the offices of Rem Koolhaas and Richard Rogers.

We offer services from strategic vision assessments through to the finest detail of implementation on projects and briefs of all scales.

We are an independent studio, allowing us to concentrate on delivering a focused and dedicated service. We have also formed collaborations and partnerships to deliver to specific briefs and programmes.

Program | Family Home 200m2
Location | Press Castle Walled Garden, Scotland

This project was commissioned through the Architect in the House programme.

The house exemplifies a super modern and super insulated sustainable solution.

Organised in two programmatic blocks; sleeping and living; stacked perpendicularly on top of one another; their geometry and location reminiscent of the original formal quadrangle layout of the Edwardian Walled Garden. Their orientation relates to the interplay of function and sun path and also to sightlines from the adjacent Castle. Excavated earth from the build was used to form an embankment that reaches the internal level of the upper floor. It is possible to walk over the surfaces of the green roofs of the lower floor onto an embankment and flow through the garden and under the soffit of the upper block and back again into the house: blurring the boundaries between the interior and the exterior. The top height of the upper block was set out to be the top height of the historic walled garden, effectively hiding the house from outside of the walled garden. This was a focus in the design statement leading to the granting of planning permission for this proposal.

The forms and materials were deliberately simple in order that the clients were able to procure local labour. The lower block is lightweight super thermal blockwork cavity construction and the upper level is layered timber construction with recycled paper insulation. The timber cladding to the upper block uses locally sourced Larch. The specialisms were restricted to glazing supplier and green roof build-ups (sedum type).
