In 2007 our co-founders Tim Hancock and Adam Raspison created Atelier 3 having worked in other Architectural Practices both nationally and in Cornwall. They wanted to create a Practice that could offer Architectural Services in Devon and Cornwall that are affordable, accessible and creative.
Since 2007 our portfolio has grown and so has our team; Atelier 3’s strength is the team. We consist of individuals who all uniquely bring a wealth of expertise, experience and creativity. We collaborate in regular in house design team meetings and work in an open office where we creatively and technically critique and enrich projects. This dynamic approach means that your inspiration and vision are shared throughout the team regardless of which stage your project is at.
We offer a balanced approach to projects with technical competence, design ability and importantly a professional architectural service. We consist of members of the Royal Institute of British Architects and the Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists in Cornwall.
Atelier 3 is a Chartered Practice of the Royal Institute of British Architects in Cornwall and is proud to be associated with:
Atelier 3 also supports ‘Shelter, the housing and homeless charity’ by annually taking part in the national program ‘Architect in the House’.
As architects and designers we need to keep up date with technical advancements and changes to legislation, we achieve this through a CPD program and a zest for knowledge.
Tim Hancock and Adam Raspison steer the team and philosophy of Atelier 3. Since 2007 we have grown a little and we think it’s important you meet the rest of us. It is rather brave putting our photos up on the website but we feel it is nice for you to put a face to a name.
