Our aim is to provide a high quality, personalized service to homeowners and private clients to help form and improve their homes and create beautiful places.
Each and every one of our projects is unique and our flexible approach is designed to accommodate all differences and nuances.
We understand that all architecture must work for the end-user. In our case this is always the client.
We work closely with our clients and strive to fully understand their requirements and tastes to enable us to produce the ultimate design solution every time.
We also realise that each of our clients will have varying experience of the design and construction process and different requirements as to the level of input they will want from us, so we tailor our service accordingly, to provide a suitable level of assistance.
The HomeStudio team has come together with a shared desire to create well-considered, relevant and high-quality residential architecture.
With a broad spectrum of skills and a common aim to get the utmost out of a design brief for our clients, our small team has a wealth of relevant knowledge and experience to ensure that every aspect of our client’s project is considered to achieve the best results within the constraints and opportunities that exist for each one.
HomeStudio also benefits from the resources and experience of its larger, partner office – Northlight Architects, without the additional overheads and whilst also maintaining the personal touch that we consider to be essential for the type of work we love.

In 2005 he merged that business with an established Leeds based office and became the London director of Ramsden and Partners Architects. He held that role until 2010 where he grew his client base in the developer led residential sector. He formed Cooley Architects in 2010.
Ralph has a strong understanding of the Residential and Student Residential sectors and is a design focused architect who uses a creative approach to problem solving in a commercial environment.
He lives in East London with his wife and two young children who occupy most of his spare time.
BA (Hons), Dip Arch
Alex studied architecture at Oxford Brookes University and London Southbank University. Graduating in 2000 he worked for a number of years in North and East London, gaining valuable experience in the commercial and retail sectors. He then moved to a medium sized practice in Farringdon, where (as an Associate and Technical manager) he was primarily involved in the design and running of small private residential jobs, with further involvement in a number of luxury hotel developments.
In 2011 Alex set up as self-employed, directing his energy towards smaller-scale residential projects, which is the type of work he is particularly excited about.
He now lives in his home-town of Frome with his wife and two daughters and from where he looks after our South-Western jobs.
Alex has a keen interest in residential design in general, architectural detailing and materials. With experience of designing in a range styles, depending on the specific context of a project (although tending more towards contemporary design) he employs a thorough, logical and technical approach to the design process, whilst always considering the specific requirements as defined by the needs and wishes of the building’s end users.
As well as architecture, Alex has a keen interest in music, motorsport, swimming in very cold water and the Universe.
