Ask an Architect Event 


Craig Morris - Director, BiBO Studio

BiBO is an RIBA Chartered Practice of Architects established in 2018 to offer a more joyful approach to designing and delivering architecture.

BiBO = better in, better out. It’s our reimagining of the computing principle that if you put garbage in, you get garbage out.

The ‘better’ that we put in at BiBO is based on 3 simple ideas: Curiosity, Integrity & Joy.


We promise to always question whether there is a cheaper, simpler, nicer, better way.


“If I wouldn’t want to live/work/learn/play there myself, I won’t draw it”.


Life is short, enjoy it. We’ve learned that we do our best work when we are happy.

When we’re happy, we’re engaged. When we’re engaged, we’re better at communicating and more excited about our work. When we’re communicating and excited about our work, our clients are happy.



Haydn Bennett - Chartered Architect

Haydn runs a small practice with recent and extensive experience in house extensions and alterations with a background in education and commercial projects.

The practice aims to provide a high quality comprehensive service to a variety of clients from initial feasibility through to detailed design and inspection of construction, working with home owners to improve and enhance their homes and to build new to meet their needs. Partial services are also offered to cover any aspects of the wider design and management of projects.

The practice has a particular interest in energy conscious design and increasingly in sustainable and “Eco” constructions and examination of these issues now forms part of nearly all projects.






Svend Rumbold - Rumbold-Ayres Landscape Designers

Svend studied under six-times RHS gold medallist Duncan Heather and holds a postgraduate diploma in landscape design. His practice, Rumbold-Ayers Landscape Designers, focuses principally on residential projects for private homeowners and self-builders across the south and west of England. Svend originally studied at Oxford University and UMIST and is also a chartered engineer, with a broad background that extends from clean energy to agriculture.
