About us

Cambridge based studio24 architects are a small creative studio that work with clients who's projects are on challenging sites, often have competing space requirements, or need economic creative thinking.


Guided by a sustainability ethos, the studio have won local awards for both design and construction.


Our designs are characterised by their creative approach, intelligent use of space and an empathetic use of materials to a given context. The application of technology and construction is a particular focus of projects, that bring visual appeal and technical clarity to our designs. We aim to minimise and use materials to optimise a balance between environmental impact and performance in use. We use passive principles to benefit designs and these underpin building performance and inform architectural narratives. These qualities, coupled with the specifics of location, orientation, geometry, historical and local context and use, make every project unique.


Studio24 architects was founded by Mark Richards in 2012. Mark, a Chartered Architect since 1994, has extensive architectural design and delivery experience. He has been a director within international design practices, designing and leading large scale projects in the UK and overseas. He has a keen interest in mixed use typologies, environmentally conscious building and an aptitude for simplifying complex problems. Mark was the RIBA elected member of the Cambridge City Design Review panel in 2017 and is a supporter of the local RIBA chapter; the Cambridge Association of Architects.
