The Abell Nepp studio is comprised of dedicated architecturally trained professionals who are passionate about designing technologically sophisticated projects. For us, we combine craft with design, from the most complex laboratories to inspiring public-realm spaces to sensitive heritage buildings. Although technical, we are creative. We are collaborative whether leading the Design Team or assisting other practices. We strive to optimise the balance between form and function.
Intentionally, we keep our studio small. This enables the Directors, Chris and Bruce, and Associate, Rachel, to actively contribute on all projects and directly guide and grow our employees. Our clients benefit from experienced advice on all projects at all phases during a project.
The studio is informal and collaborative, we support our staff and encourage healthy work / life balance through providing flexible working hours and minimising overtime working. Over the years, we have maintained a multicultural studio with a largely equal gender balance.
Our completed buildings successfully demonstrate our commitment to design quality; three being finalists in regional and national design awards and a member of the Higher Education Design Quality Forum (HEDQF). Providing environmentally sustainable buildings is embedded in our design process and verified through our quality and environmental management procedures including ISO 9001 and ISO 14001.
