  • 2014

    we are moving...

    and as of october 2014, we are moving to our new studio - a former public wc that we have converted into a new, industrial styled design studio. from our new home, Studio Loo, we will be not only designing each day, but running events and courses too. we will have a window gallery of stuff we have sourced and made, plus great things that others have made too. come and say hello.

how can we help?

we work across a variety of design disciplines - here is a brief introduction...

interior design

we provide a full service for interior design projects, from concept design to project management and everything in between for both private and commercial clients. need planning permission or building regulations submissions? we can help with that too.

landscape design

we specialise in soft but contemporary landscape and garden schemes of all sizes, with a particular emphasis on edible planting. we undertake both residential schemes or public / large commercial spaces and focus on site specific planting to enhance biodiversity.

product design

we create our own ranges of products for use in our interior design projects, some of which are also available as limited editions. salvaged and upcycled materials are also used extensively by the studio.

writing

from our award winning blog, the ecospot blog (which is below), to design research and reviews, we believe writing is a key part of design thinking. our writing has also featured in online articles as well as print publications on design and architecture.

speaking

claire lectures and speaks internationally on design, whilst also being an Associate Lecturer at both the University of Sussex and the Open University. claire was also selected as a BBC Expert Woman in design and architecture in 2014, has been interviewed on BBC Radio and is currently working with production companies on programming concepts for television.

courses and events

we are in the process of finalising the courses and events which will run at our new studio - Studio Loo - a converted former public WC in Hove. day courses on interior design and creativity will feature, along with foraging dinners and hands on workshops. contact us to receive our events newsletter and be kept up to date.

sustainable

whatever we do, we strive to ensure that we create design that is exciting as well as being ethical. recycled products, upcycled products, salvaged pieces, local craftspeople, locally sourced items and biodiversity supporting designs are our thing.

events...

we have got loads of things planned for 2015 - check here to see our latest events, walks, talks etc...

May 2015 - Artists Open Houses, Brighton - over four weekends in May, Studio Loo will be open for the Artists Open Houses West Hove trail, showing our curated selection of great design, prints, illustration and homewares from brilliant designers, as well as our 2015 collection of sustainable designed furniture and products for the home.

we love working on all types of projects - here is a small selection of projects we have completed for our lovely clients since 2008

2014 recap – August – a Cor-ten steel fence…

Today on our recap we are back in August, where things were fine and warm and we were enjoying toasty days outside in our gardens. We found a rather nice fence for those gardens too… first published August 2014… Ok. We are bending the rules just a touch today with this fantastic image. Not strictly […]
