Rural Architecture Workshops

Roots Design Workshop believes that the best solutions come from a collaborative and inclusive approach. We therefore run a continuing series of architectural and environmental design Workshops in remote and rural communities. These events make our professional sustainable architecture services accessible by offering free advice on potential projects. These could range from small domestic renovations to community energy schemes.

We can also be employed to host project specific Workshops. A Workshop can provide an invaluable opportunity to discuss and review a project and objectively assess the next stages; they can be engaging, creative and exciting community events. Please visit our portfolio page for examples of some of the Workshops we’ve conceived and hosted.

Please visit our News page for any up-and-coming workshops in your area, or get in touch if you’d like us to host a Workshop with you.

Mobile Service

We deliver our sustainable architecture design services, workshops and exhibitions through our mobile office; the Archivan (TM). The vehicle offers a flexible holistic facility that brings our professional design and project management service to the customer in a place and at a level which suits their needs. Our aim is to ensure that good design is not limited by geographical location by providing a cost effective service to our customers.

Our places page is a showcase of where we have worked, and the experiences we’ve had.

Please see our News page for any up-and-coming workshops in your area, or get in touch if you’d like us to bring our Mobile Service to you.


As rural architecture specialists we approach all projects from first principles. In this way we objectively assess the Client’s ambitions and the site to form a project specific brief and programme. From this our designs acknowledge traditional and vernacular building craft as well as the historical and social contexts of the site. In this way our work becomes appropriately detailed and intrinsically linked to its place.
