Research + Design won The Abercrombie Award 2011 for Best Minor Development (Home Extension) and Best Community Project 2017 (Childrens Theatre). The foundation of Robert Bedners early career was formed while working for well known architects and artists including Sverre Fehn, Renzo Piano and Vito Acconci in Oslo, New York, Paris and London. Research + Design take on all manner of projects and also have a keen interest in biophilic design and permaculture - these are both sustainable types of design that have a love of nature at heart and endeavour to protect and enhance the plants and biodiversity on the site. Biophilic design endeavours to increase the amount of plants and local wildlife to what was on the site prior to the project. Many of the projects Research + Design work on are close collaborations with self builders and Clients that like to get involved in the design.
