Open Volume Studio Ltd is a boutique architectural design practice delivering high quality bespoke projects. Started in 2019, projects have spanned the UK with a majority around London and the Home Counties. Projects range from carefully curated west london extensions to larger developments and luxury refurbishments. With a growing portfolio of both commercial and domestic projects Open Volume Studio is becoming known for its sensitive design approach, finding creative solutions to space management and resolving tricky design solutions without aesthetic compromise.
Constantly curious about how people are affected by their surroundings, our client’s well being is always central to our focus. Open Volume Studio pays a particularly close attention to the use of light, design and materiality, coupled with our environmental and sustainability research interests. We aim to provide projects which can add value and implement meaningful change in the lives of our clients.
Finally, taking care of the next generation of designers is an important part of our manifesto. Teaching and research is an important part of Open Volume Studio Ltd as we continue to grow and aim to push the boundaries both within architectural academia and in our built environment.
