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.

INTERIOR FUTURES | PLATFORM 4 | 2019/20


This platform asks that participants speculate in a future context where wellbeing is held in policy, re-purposing and circular economic strategy are usual practice, the visceral,virtual and AI have found their calibration, cognitive consultants are be part of the design team and pre-evidence is open source.

Wellbeing as a subject is as widely defined and challenged as that of interior design. To create an anchor, a checklist, a methodology, a sensibility, the platform is using PERMA to frame the work. (Positive Emotion, Engagement, Relationships, Meaning, Achievement) Developed by Martin Seligman who founded the School of Positive Psychology at the University of Pennsylvania and practiced as a therapy, this platform is interpreting the principals as a spatial practice.

Potentially critiqued as shallow with a snappy acronym the intersections and network between the elements and how to create a meaningful activation requires a complex, nuanced and radical inquiry. 

The PERMA Space is an interior environment tuned to offer the conditions for wellbeing. Futures platformers are curious about finding resonant intersections and how by expanding their knowledge into unfamiliar subjects they can inform and inspire their design skills to manifest purpose-performing interiors and to stimulate a discussion about what the future of the design of the interior could be. What happens when we view design as a medium in systems thinking? How different will our design choices be? The materials, the spaces between, the programming within, if considered consciously with the intention to encourage us to flourish? Will interiors passively or actively heal us? What workflow processes can be used to allow “on purpose” outcomes? Working as a group and independently the platformers, through mostly cogntive science optics, are researching how environment influences us.

The site is Clerkenwell, where the feedback loop between past and present wellbeing interventions create a rich context for future re-purposing and intervention: 12th Century Knight’s Templar crusade to Jerusalem with 13 medicinal plants still grown in St John Square, Chamberlin, Powell and Bon estates, Clerkenwell Road creation after the Public Health Act 1875, Fleet River tunnelling, 800 year old markets, St Barts Hospital, Crossrail, Henry 8th meat eating clubs, etc.etc. 

Each platformer has developed their Perma-space brief as an intersection between attitude, intuition, science, data and context. For some, tomorrow is the future and for some the dial is set 20 years ahead. All have created complex briefs that challenge their design skills to translate purposeful briefs into spatial, material and temporal experiences.
