Studio RBA - What makes them different?
This issue we sat down with Trailblazing architects Studio RBA to talk about what makes them different from other architects. Interestingly, when we asked founder Adam Morgan he grinned and confidently said ‘we LOVE a challenge; in fact that’s when we’re at our best. Where other architects stop, we start.’
Adam explained that Studio RBA pride themselves on honesty, technology and accuracy. These 3 elements have served the company so well that ‘every client we’ve worked with has done something else with us, so you can’t ask for more than that’ said Adam. Their founder explained that Studio RBA always strive to be at the forefront of technology for example he explained that they don’t just model a building, they actually model the whole site with advanced software called Revit. Adam said he insists on a full topographical survey, building and site model to achieve a full understanding of the project, something you just can’t get with 2D CAD drawings alone. He added ‘as we all know, technology is at the forefront of almost everything in the modern era, and it’s the same in architecture. We are constantly investing in the latest software to provide our clients with the best possible outcomes for their developments and that’s why we have so much repeat business’.
It’s this level of detail and foresight that saw Studio RBA appointed to deliver a development called Eclipse by Ridgemere Developments, their first one since turning developer from contractor. Furthermore, there was a level change from front to back of 2 meters, and because of Studio RBA’s software knowledge skills they relished this difficult task and solved the problem. Eclipse is a 10 storey £19.75 development boasting 217 studio, 1 and 2 bedroom apartments situated between St James Street, Greenland Street and New Bird Street.
Studio RBA have also just received planning consent on another project of theirs, Duke Street Boutique, a 30-unit boutique style hotel based right in the heart of Liverpool by developer Living Brick. The site had been vacant for a number of years and now the project will commence in spring of this year, aiming at bringing something new to the hotel market in the local area.
In our next issue we talk to Adam personally about his journey, a very interesting story!
