Building Studies


Space_Play is a design studio run by architectural and urban designers to research, challenge, and develop ideas about the buildings and cities we live in. Our passion for both designing and making has led to establishing a base with dedicated studio space and equipment. We currently operate in-house laser-cutting and 3D printing along with workshop space for the production of architectural model-making and crafted designer products and artwork. We take a proactive stance in developing our own projects, artwork and research, but also accept commissions and collaborations. We are a very small team with extensive experience in architecture and urban design both in the UK and abroad, but our passion lies in collaborating with others to challenge, define, and develop ourselves through every project.
