RCKa provides an innovative model for architectural practices operating in a challenging and changing civic and economic landscape. Our active and enterprising approach to enabling and securing projects of relevance to the local community is based upon critical dialogue, and was developed to satisfy the central ambition of the practice, to produce consistently high-quality pioneering and socially responsive architecture.
We’re passionate about producing socially responsive architecture, beautiful buildings that respond and resonate with people and place. This approach integrates stakeholders and users in the design process to ensure proposals support use.
We believe that only by developing a deeper knowledge of those who will use our buildings, and testing proposals with them, are we truly able to innovate.
RCKa benefits from an enthusiastic and capable team. We celebrate the diversity and breadth of experience that comes from varying backgrounds, and believe that this helps us to design places better suited to the people that live, work and play in them.
Ours is a collaborative and inclusive studio; we apply equal weight to the opinions of everyone – an approach which extends to our collaborations with other consultants, clients and the community, and which enriches the buildings and places we design.
