One of the biggest factor is the environment we are in…
We spend 90% of our time indoors and 65% of this is in our own homes. Poor housing costs the NHS £1.4B per year!
The pandemic has only exaggerated the impact on people’s physical and mental health due to poor living conditions. Much of the existing housing stock out of the 29 million in the UK is not designed with health and wellbeing in mind.
Born out of personal experience and the need to make a change. Wellspace Architects was created to challenge the status quo and provide more than your typical architectural services.
We have quality guidelines as well as professional indemnity insurance, meaning clients can be confident in the level of work we provide.
We create spaces that enhance people’s lives by sustainably designing for better living, wellbeing, health, and happiness.
We work from house extensions to commercial properties. Everyone can benefit from what we have to offer.
We use principles on human psychology and research
Our approach is to integrate principles from the WELL Building Standards, look at human psychology and research to create positive emotional experiences within everyday design. We create innovative user-centric solutions, balancing between environmental impacts and economic viability.
