KYRF Architecture is a practice based in Norwich, owened and run by Jim Ross. With over 15 years of experience in practice, Jim works to find appropriate and engaging ways of making buildings, projects and places work.
We aspire to work with clients on modest designs, making something valuable and uplifting out of the every day. Designs which aim to be effective, simple, and beautiful. Buildings that fit with the way we want to live.
Always looking for the clearest route to lead clients to the outcomes they desire, soft skills are complimented with many years of navigating the planning process, a firm technical grounding and an intuitive 1:1 understanding of construction.
Jim draws on tried and tested tools to enable clients to make well-informed decisions. Always with the project budget and enviromental impact in mind, his eye for contemporary design in complex environments, combined with patience and tenacity, has delivered high-quality design solutions in sensitive contexts.
Prior to setting up KYRF Architecture, Jim was an Associate and Senior Designer at Caroe Architecture Ltd a leading conservation practice. Projects included private residential, master planning for a cathedral quarter, a new National Trust welcome building and car park, and as design manager for a new internal porch for St.Pals Cathedral. Jim is also a director of Cambridge Architectural Research, a think tank for the bult enviorment.
In his role of Design Fellow at Cambridge University, Jim has the opportunity to reflect upon wider design practice and pass on his delight in finding simple solutions in complex environments to the next generation of young Architects.
