The Practice


The practice

We have over 25 years of experience in designing homes and buildings for domestic, residential and commercial purposes. Whilst every project is different, our approach remains consistent. We combine innovative design with practical solutions.

For each project, we start by understanding the desired goal. Then we apply our creative flair to achieve this. Whether it’s a functional space to live in, a residential development scheme that requires a certain return on investment or a commercial development where speed is of the essence.

The studio is led by owner and practice principal, Anthony Rice. Before starting Urban Designs, Anthony worked for over 15 years as architectural designer for a number of large house builders, where his results-driven philosophy was fine-tuned. Starting his own practice meant that he was able to combine this experience with the freedom to bring a wider creative flair to projects.

Having grown to a team of seven, the practice now has both depth and range – with specialities across domestic, residential and commercial architectural design. Even with Urban Designs’ growth, the practice still brings a personal touch, with individual designers dedicated to each project.
