Architects set to ‘pop up’ in Ludlow


A Shropshire architectural firm is to host a ‘pop-up practice’ in Ludlow this month as part of its expansion plans.

Johnson Design Partnership, of Bridgnorth, is staging the two-day exhibition on February 23 and 24th at the Clive Hotel in Bromfield, next to the Ludlow Food Centre, and is inviting local residents and businesses to attend.

A team of staff from the business will be on hand for ‘ask the expert’ sessions when a range of architectural models, visuals, drawings and videos will be on show.

“It is exciting to be bringing a ‘pop up’ practice to Ludlow once again,” said Vic Johnson, founder of the partnership.

“We held a very successful event last autumn and our team is now following this up with a second event.

“Our aim is to meet prospective clients face to face, build up relationships with people and connect with businesses and we will be offering consultation on general design matters or specific projects.

“There will be a display of our work, together with samples of materials and finishes and literature from suppliers.

“We are bespoke, design-orientated architects with a wealth of local experience and are happy to talk to people about a range of issues, including planning permission for historic buildings or conservation areas and environmental matters such as how to achieve carbon-neutral schemes.

“We can also advise on reconfiguring houses, building in gardens of larger properties, designing courtyards and outside entertaining areas and providing spaces for working from home.

“Ludlow is an amazing place to live and work and we are keen to raise our profile here. We have already secured a contract for a large-scale and innovative project in a prominent town-centre position and will be announcing further details soon,” Mr Johnson said.

The partnership was also involved in the initial stages of plans for an education facility by the river in Ludlow at Dinham for the Severn Rivers Trust.

The company’s pop up architectural practice will be held in the boardroom of the Clive Hotel next to Ludlow Food Centre on the A49 and people are invited to drop-in or make a one-to-one appointment.
