I'm an architect with wide experience of designing new-build and re-purposed historic buildings, in particular for public sector and creative industries clients. I also teach architecture at the University of Nottingham, and am a trustee for Dance4.

Urban Fabric Architects is an architectural practice based in Nottingham, led by two partners: Richard Woods and Alison Davies, who each have over twenty years’ post-qualification experience, and who have both won many design and technical awards for their work. Urban Fabric have an expertise in both new-build and adaptation works to historic buildings, and have recently completed award-winning projects in Nottingham, Birmingham and Redruth. We currently have a number of new projects under way in Nottingham and the surrounding region.
