We are a unique spatial design agency, working across the fields of architecture, urban design, infrastructure and landscape. We work with our clients and commissioners to create beauty and enduring value from complex situations, for new and existing buildings, through to larger-scale urban strategies.
5th Studio's design approach allies conceptual clarity with practical 'making' skills – and is underpinned by a series of principles which inform the way we design and deliver projects.
5th Studio are able to think, design and organise at a strategic scale - operating across infrastructure, engineering, conservation, ecology and planning. Our work at this extra-large scale - across projects which range from the re-thinking postindustrial landscapes to the strategic planning of future change within historic cities - aims to create strong places by combining visceral and analytical responses to their particular topographies.
Our work is anchored by the experience of working and thinking across this spectrum of scales, disciplines and projects: we are skilled at thinking strategically, whilst also maintaining a meticulous attention to detail.
