A sustainable approach to modern design

Design Hill Holt Wood


The Architectural design practice was established in 2009 by two architectural graduates from De-Montford University. The students, Sam Brown and Tom Morgan, approached Hill Holt Wood aiming to take a concept design into reality. In response Hill Holt Wood challenged the two students to work on site and achieve the feat for themselves.


From this inception the design team was established as a 12 month internship for graduating students. Each year a new team run the design team while aiming to strengthen and establish the projects further.

The team are fundamentally grounded in true sustainable design and specialise in alternative construction methods. The practice has a mixture of clients from local authorities, schools, small businesses and private clients and undertakes work ranging from domestic new-builds to specialist commercial projects.


The design team also undertake the challenge of living on-site, within the woodland, and continuing to build and improve their own living accommodation – a project started with the original design team.
