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.

Shady Nook
A house for a family situated in a site of biological importance noted for its beautiful ancient woodland. The  passive house design enables low energy consumption when in use, along with the provision for renewable energy production on site. We are working to ensure locally sourced, low carbon materials are used in the construction and the designs add to the picturesque nature of the site. On site.

Holcombe Walk
A modest timber frame extension and interior alterations to a tough little 1950s house in Manchester. The charming garden wraps around the house; a series of external rooms that bring life and nature to the glazed garden room. Built.





















.


Brookhouse Kitchen, Kent
The design of two interiors in a  Grade II listed tudor cottage for a cookery writer.  The project involved removing a wall between the kitchen and hallway opening up the space at the heart of the house.  Two offset chamfered timber posts were inserted and a thin, red concrete floor laid. Bespoke oak panelled kitchen units were designed to meld around the crooked interior. Built.

Artist Cohousing, Yorkshire
Six studio houses to attract young creatives to settle in a remote area of the Yorkshire Dales to live and work collectively. Ground floor work spaces open out through tall workshop doors on to a communal yard between the two buildings; a sheltered space for large scale working and collective celebration. Feasibility Study.

Cranborne Road
Opening up the existing cramped interiors to create a series of linked rooms, whilst subtly modernising the rear of the house to suit the life and work of a fabulous cook. Built.
