About

Fiona Darey, Architect

FDA&I Ltd is a creative chartered architecture practice based in Bath, Somerset. This design team provides a friendly, high quality service for projects of all sizes and budgets, both contemporary and traditional.

We offer professional services in architecture with integrated interior design, space planning, local authority planning, building contract administration and design consultation. Projects include new-build, conservation, restoration and renovation.

FDA&I strives to create a beautiful solution to every design brief. Each individual project is developed with sensitivity to both context and user.

We believe that good design can be functional and playful, with place and people as key components in the design process.

Passionate about environmental responsibility, we always consider sustainable solutions in each step of the design journey.

We believe that our service should ‘go the extra mile’, always being hands-on and supporting the client throughout each step of the project.

Always exploring solutions with rigorous attention to detail, we use a thoughtful palette of materials with extensive knowledge of craft and technology.

Although FDA&I Ltd is based in Bath, we enjoy working on projects throughout the UK.
