Murray Kerr. Denizen Works

Denizen Works was founded by Murray Kerr in 2011 to explore projects of diverse scales and typologies. Their projects, though scattered across the UK and beyond, are all joined in an approach which taps into local history, landscape, microclimate and community. Collective output is fundamental to their working practice, and it is only with in-depth client briefing and collaboration that they begin developing their ideas.

They believe projects of all scales, types and location can be successfully approached in this way, delivering architecture of the highest quality that is personal, functional and inspiring.

Denizen Works is an RIBA Chartered Practice with offices in London and Glasgow, and undertake projects in the UK and abroad.
