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.

Decarbonise Your House Now! 
By 2050, all our homes need to be net carbon zero.  ‘Decarbonise Your House Now!’  explores ways to reduce the environmental impact of our homes and  the creative architectural potential of how it might be done. It is the culmination of a year-long research project funded by the Royal Institute of British Architects. The guide can be downloaded here.

Retrofit Social Housing - A Practical Guide for Local Authorities & Registered Providers.
Adapting successfully for climate change is the great challenge of our age. For local authorities (LAs) and all registered providers (RPs) overseeing existing housing stock at scale, the task of improving comfort, and supporting net zero targets to reduce emissions by 78% by 2035, can be loaded with complexity. Amidst a shifting policy landscape, Karakusevic Carson Architects, XCO2 and Editional Studio have come together to share our experience and expertise in the field of retrofit and offer practical guidance for rising to the challenge. The guide can be obtained here.

William Sutton Prize - ‘Roving Retrofit’ 
A project that works with housing associations and residents to retrofit and upgrade their homes by providing access to knowledge, skills and training from an expert design and build team. Through hands-on workshops, residents can reduce their carbon consumption and energy bills and go on to train to train as retrofit contractors. Highly Commended 2021.
