The studio opened for business in 2009. It was started by David Bell who had worked previously for Ruddle Wilkinson (Capita) and Broadway Malyan – significant large scale Architectural practices in the UK.

David has delivered projects across Europe and beyond, ranging from Grade ii Listed Flour Mill residential conversions in Manchester, through to Shopping Centres in Portugal, touristic resorts in Cabo Verde and Health Clubs in Dubai. His particular passions lie in residential leisure and workplace projects.

The ‘atelier’ (meaning a workshop or studio) was setup to provide a better level of service to clients in both design and delivery stages.

Since 2009 we have grown to a manageable 5 staff, with David remaining fully immersed in the day to day design and delivery of all live projects.

We pride ourselves in helping clients through all RIBA workstages, ensuring that concepts are considered in detail at inception to allow the build process to be as smooth as possible. We can be appointed for concept and planning stages only if required.

We help our clients maximise the value of their property in design terms to ensure return on investment.

We work with clients who wish to push boundaries or simply make best use of the space available.

We help you understand all design and layout options available, and advise throughout the process on best practice and how to maximise potential.

  • professional and attention to detailWe used Atelierdb to design and project manage our kitchen extension. We found David extremely professional and with great attention to detail. The design process was tailored and iterative to ensure we met our objectives wherever possible, and the project management service was invaluable to keep us on track (and sane!) during the building works. We are now delighted with the new living space that it has achieved for us.

  • extremely pleasedWe appointed Atelierdb to re-design our house prior to a full renovation. We were extremely pleased with the service, David and his team provided many layout possibilities, they were flexible and professional throughout and always had solutions. I would highly recommend them.

  • support and patienceWe have recently completed our kitchen extension project and I can only recommend David and his team. The support and patience during the design phase was great and the project management and support during the construction has been really helpful. They turned an idea into an amazing living space.
