The Practice


Cook Associates seek to understand a Client’s problems to thereby inform a creative and effective solution. All schemes must recognise commercial reality.


Our buildings celebrate their owner’s aspirations; light and space; form; flexibility; and function. We seek practicality of build conversant with innovation and sustainability. The building belongs to the Client. Our creativity, imagination, vision and intuition are for the benefit of the Client.


English Heritage have praised one of our schemes as “An attractive contemporary design that utilises traditional materials in an interesting and innovative manner.”


Cook Associates have particular interest in timber frame and prefabrication and are long standing members of the Timber Research and Development Association. Cook Associates have the capacity and experience to design one-off timber frame for manufacture by carpentry/ joinery workshops as well as more traditionally using timber frame specialists.
