shedkm practice socially responsive design. Our work demonstrates a people-first approach to placemaking, creating vibrant neighbourhoods and long-term social sustainability.
We deliver innovation through strategic commercial thinking, a strong design rationale and modern construction methods deployed for speed and efficiency.
Our enterprising approach challenges design assumptions to add value for clients and end users.
Rigorous, rational yet playful, our ideas give buildings and places a strong identity which helps realise both commercial and social ambitions.
Building on the strengths and emotional connections inherent in the built and social fabric of a city, our thoughtful interventions create a rich and sustainable sense of place. Each scheme is considered as a piece of the city, the spaces between as important as the individual buildings in expressing heritage, community and place.
From our studios in London and Liverpool, where we were established 25 years ago, we continue to be at the forefront of regenerative placemaking, with a UK-wide portfolio of transformational schemes, and vibrant new city neighbourhoods rooted in the historic urban grain.
Creating desirable places in which people want to live and work, impacts the economic viability of development and unlocks long-term commercial opportunity.
shedkm works in partnership with clients to offer flexibility, pragmatism, and a proactive approach to problem solving. We are adept at working within the constraints of tight urban sites or limited budgets, maximising opportunities within a brief to add value.
Our approach has always been about ‘levelling up’, and is as relevant today as ever: thoughtful, contextual design which significantly improves lives.
We continue to put well-being and great working relationships at the heart of everything we do, maintaining our friendly and flexible practice ethos as we have grown.
We have never lost sight of our founding values. Our senior team are committed not just to design leadership, but to nurturing a highly supportive environment with opportunity, autonomy and inclusion at its heart.
We listen to our staff and know how much they value our family culture, and our focus on professional and personal development. We are always delighted to hear from anyone who likes what we do at shedkm and is interested in joining us.
