Cura Design have over 14 years of award winning architectural design and place making. With over 175 completed projects, we are experts at gaining planning approvals for residential and cultural projects in stunning landscapes, including Para 84e and  Para 139 applications.


We specialize in how houses and buildings and places can connect to nature in a way that benefits both people and their environment.

We bring a foundation built from international experience in Oslo, Paris, New York City and London with world leading architecture practices and consultants to all of our projects in the UK.

Cura Design envisage a future built environment that protects and regenerates nature and biodiversity AND increases our well being through a better connection to nature. Biophilic design is at the heart of our architecture and is implemented to varying degrees into all projects we undertake.

The common thread that runs through all our projects are a love of nature and a love of life.

Biophilia, this love of living things .....we need to foster that feeling too and we need that, that's what we have to rediscover, it's reverence for living things

so that we can take on this role of being nurturers of Nature and not exploiters that's that's the key lesson we've got to learn.”  Dennis McKenna
