Rachel Bevan Architects

Rachel Bevan Architects incorporate into their designs their knowledge of ecological construction, with attention to the health and environmental impact implications of buildings & products. They undertake research work, and feed-back this knowledge into their practice work. Rachel as lead designer of this award winning practice, designs buildings with respect for the existing historic, urban or rural context. The practice has both design and hands-on expertise in Hemp Lime Construction, as published in 2008 by IHS BRE Press.
