Envelope Architects provides fresh and exciting ideas for niches within the housing and hospitality sectors. We have generated a series of off-grid building types that can float, or be elevated or located on steep and difficult sites. Recently we produced dynamic house types for the growing custom build market and integrated customised mass-produced parametric solutions with intelligent materials.
Through our unique ‘Envelopment’ process we can engage with the most complex client requirements and provide innovative architectural solutions to solve challenges; from the housing crisis facing the UK government to the impact of climate change on flood resilience.
Founder Graham Brown (Director – Architecture) has over thirty years of valuable experience in the architecture sector. He made the move to establish his own practice to create something that will catapult us into the future. With a particular focus on parametric (double curvature) architecture, he is able to encapsulate sophisticated and playful designs that challenge the status quo.
Graham is an inspiring and entertaining speaker and is regularly invited to share his ideas and experience on a wide variety of architectural, design and housing topics at events and exhibitions across the globe. Follow us on Twitter for details of upcoming engagements.
For an example of our most recent work, take a look at www.orbitalhousing.com where our futuristic Orbital Showhome and Garden concept has been shortlisted as one of 11 detached dwellings for The Graven Hill Village Development in Bicester, Oxfordshire.
