We design architecture and build environments for people to laugh in and to connect with. We stand for warmth. All our work radiates this quality.
We like stories. And we like the places that allow them to unfold. We welcome the influence of time and consider the ageing patina of surfaces in our design, material and intention. We enjoy the place where the civil meets the wild.
Through enquiry and active listening we aim to develop an architectural language that resonates throughout our work. We use nature as a model of beauty and efficiency and seek solutions that are low impact and in harmony with the site.
Craftedspace is Jenny Hall, Creative Director, architectural designer and artist working with a collective of highly skilled designers, carpenters and artists. Recently we have collaborated with 3D modeller Stuart Ball, cabinet maker Tom Provost and craftsman and photographer Giles Thaxton.
Drawing inspiration from the natural beauty of the Welsh Valley we live in, we bring a dedicated and original approach to our work.
Our first Woodland Design Laboratory in 2011 in the Snowdonia National Park launched our action research programme to explore site-specific architectural intervention.
Working with materials from the woods, we quickly explored strategies and developed a deep and intimate knowledge of the environment in which we were working. Please see details of our woodland design laboratory programme for 2012 if you want to get involved.
