Darren set up Studio B.A.D in early 2019, after many years working in a boutique studio, mainly focused on private, high-end residential projects. He set up independently to focus on using architecture to help resolve 21st century issues, such as environmental, political and economic challenges we all face today.
After many years working in private practice Darren has extensive experience working across a vast range of projects, from community schemes to the high end residential dwellings.
Darren actively engages with architectural education, helping to inspiring and supporting the next generation whilst also continuing his own, on-going journey in learning. Currently he is running the year 1 design studios at Reading School of Architecture; is an external examiner at Hertfordshire School of Architecture and a Part 3 examiner at Portsmouth School of Architecture and London Metropolitan School of Architecture, and he is a visiting critic at Brighton Interior Architecture School. He is also very proud to be part of the RIBA Role Models imitative, helping to promote architecture to all, making it more inclusive.
