MAKE CHANGE copy.jpg


We believe in learning from the building's natural setting to protect and enhance it through architectural intervention. Assembling concepts through a understanding of how culture, consumption, activity, work and interests of our clients meet together.

Designing sustainable buildings, built for lifestyle, inspired by landscape.


STUDIO/gather is a young engaging Chartered Architect studio based in West Cornwall, founded by Julian J Mills. We are a small, but growing team of architects.

We operate in a collaborative manner, looking to create timeless designs that enact joy and pleasure through both the process and the end result. Each project is approached through a similar fine-tuned creative exercise that explores the site's setting, local materials and design context along with clients' individual wants and needs. This forms a basis for an architectural output that is crafted, is beautiful, stands the test of time, and fulfills more than just a noted brief. 


‘ ...collaborative designing to blend the essential lifestyle needs with the extraordinary. Using the natural setting to inform a crafted beautiful approach. While threading sustainability through the fabric of the project.. '


The practice is built around an ethos of sustainability with our project architects having this in their DNA;

Prior to forming S/g he has held positions as Design Director and associate of award-winning multi-disciplined architectural practices across the UK.

Along with leading on Commercial scale projects, Dan has headed up a number of complex one-of-homes with energy efficiency as their roots.
