Practice

Utility is an independent design studio in central London working on cultural, commercial and private commissions.

We understand people, place, business and construction, four things that need to come together for a successful project.

And we want space to work, also to look and feel good, for the long-term, so it has to be well-made, adaptable and beautiful.

Good design, useful and lasting.
