Research and insights to inform thinking and inspire design

Anyone involved with design and the built environment knows there’s always more to learn. New thinking and research are constantly changing and enriching our approach to design – especially the ways we can support the well-being of those who use the spaces, and the steps we can take to make them more sustainable.

We regularly commission studies into the key issues affecting architects, designers and the organisations that benefit from or influence their work. The insights we gain help us improve our products and services, and sometimes change our business – and even other businesses too. We hope you’ll find them useful.
