We’re Turner Works – a new kind of architecture studio.

Over the last 11 years, we’ve grappled with shipping containers, car parks and old agricultural buildings. We’ve built spaces and places from scratch.

Every project has brought us together with like-minded organisations, enterprising local people, and partners who share our imagination, determination and ambition.

So much has come out of each one: places with a new purpose, communities with a new heart, creativity with a new backdrop.

Story → Our approach

How we work

We know that identities are all in the mind and that boundaries are there to be blurred. It’s not always about permanence, solid walls and big ideas, though we like those things too. Scraps of space are full of possibility, and long-term change can come with the briefest and smallest of projects.
