Studio Cherry was founded in 2015, to bring together our complimentary experience in the design and construction of residential, mixed use, schools, community and healthcare as well as more unusual projects.

We provide a professional and hands-on service tailored to the scale of each project. Our particular specialism is helping clients navigate through the design process from feasibility to construction and we have been successful at obtaining planning permissions within sensitive areas and for listed buildings.

Each project is grounded on:

  • A close working relationship with the client
  • Careful investigation of the site and how existing qualities of space, light and context can inform the design
  • Exploring and analysing alternative design possibilities
  • Communicating ideas with easy to understand illustrations
  • A robust understanding of technical and pragmatic requirements
  • Attention to detail to ensure continuity of vision through to completion on site
