Outpost is a London-based Architecture & Design studio, founded in 2016 by Robin Sjoholm and Thomas Housden.
The studio formed through our shared passion of exploring the role of making in design. Our design approach is hands-on; testing ideas, materials and their assembly through physical models, prototypes and full-scale mock ups. We work across disciplines to encompass product design, interior design and architecture in one studio, applying the same thought and consideration that goes into designing architecture to that of interiors and products at the 1:1 scale.
Our ambition is to make objects and spaces that are thoughtful and well-crafted offering our clients creative yet simple solutions. To achieve this, we collaborate with an extensive range of craftsmen who share our passion for combining traditional crafts with bespoke modern detailing.
Since its inception, the studio is now a team of 5, and has developed a growing portfolio of private commissions within the residential and commercial sectors as well as pursuing our own self-initiated projects.
