David Joy Architect

David Joy is a Cambridge-based architect committed to the promotion and enjoyment of a well-designed built environment.

The practice has, since its formation by David Joy as David Joy Architects in 1986, worked in a variety of fields including housing, commercial, ecclesiastical, educational buildings, and building refurbishment including listed buildings and historic churches.

The aim of the practice is to produce buildings which are not only practical solutions to the design problems posed to us by our clients, but also solutions which are aesthetically pleasing and which complement their surroundings either by blending or by being in contrast with them.

An essential factor in achieving any degree of excellence in this regard lies, we believe, in accuracy and attention to detail. To this end we attach great importance to the preparation of clear, precise and detailed working drawings which play a vital role in realising buildings which maintain the standards to which we aspire.

In short our attitude to our work can be summed up in the words: “Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with your might“.
