From Works’ studio
Each of our projects is a tailored response to the specific requirements and ambitions of individual clients. We take great care to understand the physical, historical and cultural context of our projects as we believe this leads to outcomes of greater richness and character that better our experience of space and objects.
The studio works across a broad spectrum of project types regionally and nationwide including architectural projects, interior refurbishments and remodelling, bespoke kitchen design, fitted joinery and free standing furniture design. Working on projects of varying budget, context and scale, we take an holistic approach to design believing that our skills as both architectural designers and furniture makers creates buildings and spaces of greater coherence and beauty.
The studios’ approach is hands-on with a careful attention to detail and experience. Quality in design and realisation is achieved through a rigorous design process of research, drawing, model making, sample testing and prototyping alongside strong collaboration with clients, contractors, fabricators and other design professionals. Since its inception From Works have been fortunate to have realised a variety of rewarding projects and built up a network of talented collaborators both locally in their home city of Sheffield and nationally across the UK.
From Works co-founders combine practising in the studio with education and teach on undergraduate architecture and interior architecture courses whilst acting as guest critics to a number of UK universities.
