A lot invented from a little, at all levels
David Sheppard Architects for David Sheppard Architects
Contract value: £150,000
Studio is the town base for David Sheppard Architects, a modest corner building marked by a signature pivoting timber door invites the visitor in. It works as an art gallery, with small space for rent and an architectural studio for two.
At the head of an exquisite staircase an equally exquisite circular meeting room balances on a singular beam poised over the entrance – creating order from an irregular triangular plot in the beaux arts tradition.
Clients, once snared, could not fail to be impressed by this architect’s ability to invent a lot from a little, at all levels. Sheppard’s work must be made known to aspiring architects, if only to pass on some of his thoughtfulness.
