Studio

Since its foundation Form Design Group has relished the challenges of working within sensitive urban and rural environments. A commitment to revealing the essence of the brief and exploring rational and economic solutions is met with enthusiasm and care, to achieve long-term value. This has attracted clients that have commissioned the Practice to undertake a variety of commissions that range from improving the quality of bathing water around the coastline of Devon and Cornwall, to interventions into historic places. The portfolio is comprised of a number of landmark residential, commercial and mixed-use schemes throughout the region and beyond.

We are motivated by place making and the fundamentals of space, light, proportion and material application in our architecture to achieve a simplicity and clarity. Our guiding principle is to work collaboratively, from the outset, with all design disciplines, and develop a shared vision for projects that is reasoned and elegant and faithfully interprets the preoccupations of the brief. We are acutely aware of the increasing importance of environmental performance and adaptability of our buildings that will allow them to live long and age gracefully. This approach and philosophy has been nurtured throughout the life of the Practice and the resulting buildings are widely acknowledged and cherished. The process is demanding and requires experienced, dedicated people, working cohesively and inspired by the potential of our clients’ mission.
