is an architecture practice committed to working within planetary boundaries.

We design homes and public spaces, specialising in Passive House and retrofit; adapting existing buildings to reduce their energy use. Through our research we advocate for a low-carbon built environment and explore how resourceful, creative design and sustainable materials can help to restore and regenerate natural systems.   

The studio is featured in the Architect’s Journal’s ‘40 under 40’ - ‘a who’s who of the nation’s next generation of boundary-pushing designers and innovators’ and the Architecture Foundation’s book - ‘New Architects 4’ showcasing ‘the best British architecture practices of the last 10 years.’

Our guide for homeowners:
'Decarbonise Your House Now!’
was awarded the Royal Institute of British Architect’s Research Grant in 2022 and we recently published ‘Retrofit Social Housing: A Practical Guide for Local Authorities’  co-authored with Karakusevic Carson Architects and environmental engineers XCO2.

Our work has been exhibited as part of
Retrofit 23: Towards Deep Retrofit of Homes at Scale’
at The Building Centre, London, ‘UrbanistasNW Exhibition’  at Manchester School of Architecture,
‘Retrofit Reimagined’
  in Birmingham, and  ‘Towards the Mean’  at the Barbican Centre, London.

In 2023, we gave talks as part of Glasgow’s Architecture Fringe on ‘Greenwashing’ and ACAN!’s ‘Materials Stage’ at Future Build in London.

The studio is run by architects
Jo Sharples
and
Jack Richards.
