Citizens Design Bureau was established as a co-operative company of architects. We enjoy working with interesting people to make unusual things happen, developing rigorously practical solutions that are woven with ingenuity and make people smile.

Our aim is to make good design accessible, humane and sensitively sustainable so in addition to a traditional architectural design service, we offer one-off 'back of the envelope' idea surgeries, collaborative design sessions, organizational and brief development workshops.

Our work covers a range of scales from public buildings to products and digital interfaces. We are currently working on numerous start up work and events space projects for Creative Network Partners, bespoke furniture and finishes design for the Everyman theatre in Liverpool, numerous private dwellings, a live music venue as well as a major housing research project.

Collectively we also have a multi-disciplinary range of experience in teaching and research and have qualified Passivhaus designer status. We are always looking to expand our network of collaborators. Please get in touch to discuss ideas.

The design celebrates the Cafe Royal's 150th anniversary with a filigree 'tinsel' of Cafe Royal lettering as well as the names of famous patrons and suspended macaroons. Hanging trays represent the bars within the hotel: The Oscar Wilde champagne bar, the Green bar specialising in Absinthe and the cafe with tea and cakes.

The Royal Court Theatre is renowned as an oasis of radicalism in Kensington, dedicated to promoting new work by innovative writers. The theatre has recently undergone a refurbishment of their much loved undercroft bar originally designed by Haworth Tompkins in 2000. The bar and restaurant reopen this week, testing the Theatre’s brief that the overall space should feel ‘democratic’ in its usage, welcoming to their diverse audience, actors and playwrights alike.

Enamelled steel wayfinding pictograms: part of a package of bespoke furniture, fittings, finishes and signage by Citizens Design Bureau in collaboration with architects of the building, Haworth Tompkins. Our aspiration was to create a space that feels special without pretension; new but not slick. Every detail is designed to be touched, to be enjoyed, with a style that reflects the theatre's origins in 1960s radicalism, whilst being accessible to new audiences.

The interior renovation and refurbishment of the Grade II listed building aims to address the bottleneck at the bottom of the stairs through a radical re-planning of the undercroft space. The new horseshoe bar relocates from the periphery to the centre, punctuating the otherwise cavernous room and reflecting of the iconic Royal Court sign in the mirror of the new bar. This creates subtle spatial subdivisions. Nooks, booths and benches add a diversity of dining and drinking spaces suitable for day and evening use, whilst the warmly lit 'ladies room' draws the audience through to an intimate library at the rear.
