Beep Studio is a young architecture practice with work spanning consultancy, design and making.
The Studio exists to design well for a wide audience, and brings people together to make engaging, stimulating work.
The Studio offers professional services spanning design and consultancy, with work including architecture, design, sculpture, graphics, and making. These disciplines converge under broad headings of practice and education.
Since its foundation, the studio has supported community projects through consultancy services, offering the architect's skill for revealing elegant solutions to complex questions. Wider outreach is provided through educational practice in university industry.
Beep sees good projects as the result of allowing designs to develop through robust working processes. These methods have evolved with the practice, allowing a flexible working arrangement to suit the needs of the project.
The Studio values fresh perspectives on design, and invests significant time listening to clients and end users. Through a system of open consultation with groups and individuals, shared visions are created and nurtured. A rich network of professional contacts built up over years of collaborative working are on hand to help bring these visions into being.
Principals Peter Ayres and Ed Holloway have known each other and collaborated for over twenty years.
After studying together at the University of Manchester, and working together for four years at Wilkinson Eyre Architects in London, Peter and Ed have combined their skills to fulfil a long-term aim for collaboration.
