Derek Bloom CV


At Derek Bloom Architects, we are passionate about design.

We pursue this passion with curiosity and experimentation, backed with technical expertise and a dedication to collaboration.

We explore the details of architecture: space, light, materiality, form, and context. In all projects, we encourage a consciousness of the impact of design, construction, and future use on the environment.

We recognize that design and construction are always evolving. New materials and construction techniques are continually becoming available, as are new insights into the role of design in society. Meanwhile, as we discover the dangers in our old methods and materials, the importance of sustainability becomes greater.

We are inspired by these challenges, and we seek to design buildings, furniture, and objects that accommodate the human need for inspiration, comfort, beauty and health. Looking beyond convention and style, we believe in the power of design to inspire, and to create environments that give us space to enjoy the moment.
