practice

pad is a Bristol based architectural practice engaged in a wide portfolio of work that draws on the integration of masterplanning, architecture and urban design disciplines.

Our aim is to support our clients, ranging from national developers and local authorities to private individuals, in creating and enhancing places in which people work, rest and play. We are committed to the relationship between people and places and a clear understanding of the context of a site is central to our approach. Whether working on vacant land or a listed building we aim to turn its constraints into opportunities — economic, social and environmental.

We believe the integration of Masterplanners, Architects and Urban Designers brings together a range of complementary skills that enable us to design sustainable, deliverable and creative solutions that meet and exceed client objectives and user needs.

pad is a RIBA Chartered Practice and a member of The Green Register of Construction Professionals.

"Design a thing by considering it in its next largest context.
A chair in a room, a room in a house, a house in a community, a community in a city."
