In 1990, we became NVB Architects. A lot has happened in thirty years and yet this was just the latest stage in the evolution of our practice, the history of which goes back much further. In another thirty years’ time it will be 2050, by which time the government has committed to being CO2 neutral.
There is a lot to do, but we are excited about the challenges of our next chapter and we have a great team.
Thirty years ago, none of us could have predicted the extent to which the internet would change the way we work and play, but we adapt and grow.
By 2050, the young people who come to us for work experience will be established in whatever career they decide to pursue.
The children learning in the schools we have designed will be leaders in their field.
What we can be sure of is that in 2050, our work will still be about people, adaption, evolution and necessity, approached with rigour and creativity.

Works are well underway at St Bartholomew’s Primary School in Royal Wootton Bassett for the Diocese of Salisbury. The project will increase the form of intake providing 4 new classrooms, a studio hall, new entrance, improved admin facilities and associated external plan space. The design is based around 3 simple ‘barn’ structures presenting a smart new entrance to the school.

We are very pleased that the Post Mortem and Anatomy Study Centre (Brinsea Building) is nearing completion at Langford Veterinary School for the University of Bristol.
The new building replaces existing facilities on the campus, providing a commercial PM facility supporting the local community and providing caseload for academic studies, and an Anatomy Study Centre providing a nationally-renowned teaching programme for veterinary students.
The building adapted and extended a previous commercial unit on the site to create the new facilities. The design was developed in conjunction with technical staff to ensure that potential contaminants are controlled through passive zoning of the building, and active systems to manage air-flow, drainage and cleaning.
This project complements previously completed projects by NVB Architects for Langford Veterinary School including a small-animal hospital (ICU, imaging and theatre facilities), animal welfare research spaces, Translational Biomedical Research Centre and equine-surgery building.
