Built Form Resource is a design office and consultancy that offers services in masterplanning, urban design, landscape and heritage.

We deal with a wide range of projects, from the design of new settlements on former quarry sites to infill within sensitive historic environments. Clients include landowners, developers and local authorities for whom we undertake analysis, site assessment, design guidance, concept and detailed design and design statements through to discharge of conditions and appeals.

Our ethos in creating new places is to adapt to and integrate existing natural features, built resources and current technology to meet contemporary needs.   We seek to retain but transform the essence of the place to generate a sense of time, richness of experience, high environmental performance and to fit in to the patterns of local life.


As a small, focused design office and consultancy, we embrace the collaborative approach necessary to deliver high quality results in the built environment. The projects below give a flavour of our work and experience.
