Portfolio


Practice


JL Studio is the architecture practice with a creative, collaborative and sustainable approach to design

Creative

Designs are developed to respond to the local context, respect historic structures and celebrate innovation. The resultant architecture is sensitive to its surroundings without creating a pastiche of the past.

Collaborative

A collaborative working culture is developed with the client, consultants, builders and authorities, combining the collective experience and expertise of the wider team to achieve a more robust end product.

Sustainable

The practice specialises in sustainable architecture and Joanna is a Certified Passivhaus Designer. This is an internationally recognised certification which demonstrates that she has the knowledge and experience necessary to design extraordinarily sustainable and comfortable buildings.

Passivhaus


Passivhaus offers clearly defined energy and comfort standards that produce excellent results. The technical criteria result in buildings that are healthy for both the people and the planet. The principles of Passivhaus are: build robustly, wrap it up warm, use the sun for heating and maintain good air quality. These simple criteria make the standard a sustainable solution for everyone – which is why Passivhaus is core to the practice ethos and research.
