FJR Studio is an architecture and design practice founded by Fred Renton in 2017. Prior to this, Fred worked for some of London's major architectural firms over the last 20 years and illustrations of this award-winning residential and commercial work are included. Fred is a RIBA Chartered Architect.
The studio’s main focus is high-end private residential projects and the design process is led by understanding and exploring in detail the client’s brief, aspirations and budget. The evolution of the design is communicated with a variety of hand sketches and illustration techniques, CAD (Computer Aided Design) drawings and scale models.
Natural light, local materials, modern design, sustainability, texture and a sense of place and context are key themes of the studio’s design ethos. These themes often run throughout a project from the very early concept and feasibility sketches, through the planning process, the scheme design, the detail design and ultimately the finished constructed building itself.
Fred's design background is based on the creative process and a key part of the studio is the ability to express the clarity of the design idea and concept through clean, sharp and legible drawings. The studio prides itself in turning these initial design ideas and sketches into a built reality by way of a rigorous design process. This may be a one-off house in a sensitive context to the complete re-modelling of a town house creating an individual and bespoke home for clients.
The contemporary extension and full refurbishment of the Warwick Park house illustrates the importance of high quality design and attention to detail adding value.
