PAD studio is an award-winning architecture studio, based in the south coast’s picturesque New Forest town of Lymington. This rural location nurtures and inspires our holistic approach to architecture, which is strongly rooted in landscape and place. 

The Essence of PAD studio:

‘We create spaces that offer the chance to be, pause, reflect and grow. Places to retreat to, to be sheltered by. Places that nurture the soul. Places to commune with others. Beautiful places that offer a sense of wonder to all those who encounter and experience them. Places that give back and speak of the people and setting that they belong to - back in time and looking forward to the future.’ 

Wendy Perring, Design Director
