Manifest Design Workshop Ltd is a multi-disciplinary architect’s practice and craft workshop based in Eynsham in west Oxfordshire, on the edge of the Cotswolds. A unique combination, we weave together architectural design experience with practical craftsmanship and philosophical research in our informed approach to building.
Specialising in the conservation of historic buildings, we also delight in new designs carried out with traditional craftsmanship and natural, breathable, low-carbon materials. We are trained oak-framers, working in the English tradition of scribed carpentry, specialising also in earth and straw constructions, able to design, specify and build. History informs the new, and our experience of the new informs the conservation of historic fabric and anatomies.
For us, architecture begins with an intense involvement with the people on the ground and the materials to hand, combining our practical skills and extensive knowledge of historic building techniques with excellent design abilities to produce buildings which lie close to the earth and lift the human spirit. We believe that our relationship with the natural world is full of poetry and meaning, and that architecture can show the way to enjoying this relationship to an ever closer degree.
