How We Work

RRA Architects > About > How We Work

Each RRA project is the result of a meticulous design process, regardless of its context, size or scope. We approach every commission as a unique challenge and an exciting opportunity to bring about truly excellent design. The process starts with listening to our clients, understanding their needs, and then producing design-led solutions which are bespoke to the context and needs of the end user.

The RRA studios are creative workspaces where architectural processes are painstakingly explored, often in collaboration with other consultants. Good communication and modern practice that encourages an open-minded approach to ideas is the philosophy behind all our work.

RRA designs become reality by drawing on an exceptional network of knowledge and experience that embraces every aspect of a building’s design, construction and performance. For us, design is a practical process rather than a purely aesthetic approach. Our architecture is grounded in the practicalities of contemporary building use and construction, and our creative approach is driven by the desire to deliver buildings which are as functionally efficient as they are visually compelling.

For more than 20 years, we have been designing buildings with an aim to achieve integrated low energy solutions. This is where, as in natural structures, elements of the construction work together to create comfortable and enjoyable environments.

We strive to provide projects that are environmentally responsible and take a long term view of minimising energy use and carbon emissions. This approach involves assessing the existing attributes and the client’s requirements at a very early stage to incorporate intelligent, environmental control and resilience as an organic part of the design.
