Carl Turner Architects was formed in 2006, and has established a reputation for high impact, low cost architecture. The practice works with a diverse range of clients incling small non-profit and arts organisations, the creative industries, private residential, developers and commercial end users.


Philosophies central to the firm's work are a belief in place-making and architecture's being both process and product. Their concerns encompass the mechanisms or organisations which produce both buildings and the spaces between, and how they can work with and influence them to produce an improved built environment. Both playful and experimental, the practice enjoys analysing and re-addressing the use of spaces, materials, structures, scale and landscapes, often creating unexpected outcomes. Internally, they are interested in

the user and the psychology of space. Externally, emotional influences such as materiality, colour, and shape prevail.
This desire to experiment is embodied by Slip House, whose construction was documented by Channel 4's Grand Designs. The house is being monitored by the practice for real time energy performance over a three-year period and has acted as a vehicle to test and learn about the Code for Sustainable Homes, Passivehaus and low carbon design in general.

Review

Small Thoughts and Projects is all about size, capturing the process of architectural renderings of small-size, small-scale projects and incorporating the dialogues, challenges and special insights of small projects into an overall discussion of the use of space. Projects based on the concept of 'small' range from urban stores and houses to suburban structures. Each project receives extensive notes on main discussions, the four principles of legibility, flexibility, durability and affordability, and concepts linking design with space management. The result is a lively discussion of varied projects and circumstances, perfect for any stent of design or architecture. --California Bookwatch

"Different interventions by Carl Turner Architects, distributed in urban, suburban and rural settings, and described through the thoughts that have originated them, are presented in this book, published by Artifice. The combination is attractive and the book, small but intense, is a good testimony in an honest way of making architecture." --Arquilecturas, March 2014
