A PATTERN LANGUAGE
The Principal of Patternshop*, Rebecca is the daughter of a Patternmaker and spent most of her spare time in her fathers’ ‘pattern shop’ growing up.
Patternmaking was a highly skilled craft which created timber moulds to be used in the foundry sand casting process. Patterns required skill, patience and precision. No two patterns were alike.
PATTERNSHOP* is based on these timeless principles of care, precision and invention, to create unique site-specific buildings that speak to the genius loci, or spirit of place.
We don’t work to trends but instead create well considered solutions that will bring joy and delight to the users and occupants for many years to come.
Patternshop* guarantees your project will nurture both you and the planet whilst providing cutting edge contemporary design, perfectly suited to your needs and your budget.
We aim to educate you fully about the process and walk you through each stage step by step, so you can feel assured you are in complete control of your project. We wish for this process to be transparent so you can feel understood and that your projects needs are met 100% of the way. After all, this is a journey and we want to make it a rich, positive and engaging experience for you.
