[Y/N] Studio is a creative platform established to ask questions of the built environment  

The complexity associated with designing and constructing our cities is astounding and a great deal of architecture serves only to ADD complexity. We think the role of the designer is to question these established but convuluted processes and REDUCE complexity. We work with the various inputs, histories, technologies and constraints with which we are presented to formulate a response rather than imposing an abstract theology, manifesto or style. We, as architects, are editors of the process.

The questions, and the problems, can be incredibly complex, but a successful answer should be as simple as Yes or No.

Since forming as a company in January 2017,  we have been working on a diverse range of commissions, including carefully detailed extensions, 100+ multi-unit housing schemes, a large workspace in Dalston, a mixed-use tower in South London and a footbridge for network Rail.

In 2018 the studio won a competition for 4 holiday homes in Greatsone-on-Sea, which are designed as a continuous spiral of floorplates to maximise sea views and reduce circulation space. More recently we won an invited compeition to deliver more than 60 homes in a building which has a tapering asterisk plan to maximise views and public space.

In 2019 we will start on-site with at least 4 projects, most notably the extension and refurbishment of the Bradbury Street Workspaces which face onto Gillett Square in Hackney. This will include around 1500m2 of new and refurbished work space and a new row of retail units formed from salvaged shipping containers will help to ensure continuity of the unique and valuable local community that has emerged since the sqaure was constructed nearly 20 years ago.

The people who work with us are talented and ambitious with backgrounds working in London, Switzerland and Copenhagen for Internationally recognised practices.
