Based in Oxford, Resonant Architecture is an architecture and urbanism practice whose work is rooted in the belief that great design does not have to damage the world in which we live. Specialising in low-carbon residential, education, workplace and heritage design, they devote their time to understanding the needs and aspirations of each client, and delivering beyond expectations.
Resonant Architecture’s goal is to provide solutions. Working with a diversity of specialisms across the fields of design, strategy, property, and sustainability enables them to deliver a seamlessly integrated approach to each project. They relish a challenge and pride themselves on their ability to access in-depth knowledge of the built environment to meet the demands of their brief. The group of professionals at Resonant Architecture collaborate with specialists, stakeholders and users, and innovate wherever possible.
Resonant Architecture’s philosophy has evolved over two decades, through practice, research and teaching. Central to their philosophy is that the success of a project is rooted in a powerful idea, and secured through rigorous testing of that idea against the brief and its implementation. This approach informs every aspect of their work, from analysis and long-term strategic planning, to collaboration with the end-user, specialists and suppliers.
The practice's approach begins and ends with sustainability. Protection of the environment is central to Resonant Architecture's operation as a practice, and to their work as designers and consultants. As explored in more detail on their website’s sustainability page, the natural world is our greatest asset, and critical to the health, wealth and wellbeing of all humans. In all services they will work with you to enhance the environmental benefits of your project, whether organisational, construction, or strategic.
Critical when dealing with the built environment is an understanding of context. At each scale of enquiry, the foundation of successful solution or proposal is sound research; information gathering and its careful collation that allows the precise interpretation of requirements, constraints and aspirations. For this reason this process is embedded in all of Resonant Architecture’s work whether concept design, option appraisal, or built outcome. The skills and data improved and acquired over time inform and support each area of their expertise.
