Origin Design Studio began as a limited company in March 2012, having previously worked as in house designers for an engineering practice. In 2019 we became an RIBA Chartered practice and were a Regional Finalist in the LABC Building Excellence Awards.
We specialise, although not exclusively, in residential projects of varying scale including self build, new build, barn conversions, extensions, listed buildings and loft conversions. We are currently expanding our commercial portfolio with office developments, leisure and retail projects and work on heavy and light industry buildings.
We are a refreshing and talented team of architectural designers based on the outskirts of the historical city of Lincoln. We are truly passionate about buildings and are happiest when designing them. We pride ourselves in adopting a fresh approach and our skills extend to designing all types of building. We believe in providing tailored solutions for each and every project and ensure we maintain communication with our clients throughout the process.
The majority of our work is focused around the Lincolnshire region, although we have seen an increasing amount of work coming from the London area. We believe we can offer the same high quality, good value service to all, no matter the location.
We offer a bespoke service ranging from planning and building regulations to a full architectural service as lead consultants. We can tailor our service to suit the project scale and budget. We are able to produce various drawings and imagery from 2D plans through to 3D models, either computer generated or solid physical models.
We are advocates of sustainability and enjoy educating ourselves in the latest technologies and advances.
