Arc Design Studio

ARC Design Studio is a creative community driven by a shared ambition to create a healthier, more sustainable relationship between people, place and planet.

As a RIBA Chartered architecture practice, the output of our trade is a collection of built forms – many of which will still be standing long after our own lifetimes. As such, we feel that it is our responsibility to consider the long-term impact of the decisions that we make in practice. By looking at each and every design in this context we can try to make sure that the buildings which we create do not burden future generations by contributing to the challenges of our own time.

Our ambition is to make sure that the world we leave behind is an enhancement on the one that we inherited, and we do not believe that this has to compromise our current quality of life. We can make a positive contribution to our personal health and wellbeing, as well as that of our wider society, through thoughtful, intelligent design whilst ensuring the long-term health of our planet.

The team works across a lively portfolio of projects, from bespoke dwellings and intricate conservation works to large scale master planning and estate management.

We are proud signatories of Architects Declare and the RIBA Climate Challenge 2030 and are always looking to work with people that share our values, to promote meaningful change within our industry.

Alongside our architecture practice we have setup ARC Space, a co-working business for creative industries, to build a networked community of designers here in the heart of Nottingham.
