We specialise in cutting-edge contemporary design alongside the re-use, refurbishment and extension of historic and listed buildings.
Tonic Architecture was established in 2012 by Tobias Feilding-Crawley and Nick Tomlinson.
Based in Bristol, we work throughout the country on all scales of private residential, development, public and education projects.
Tonic Architecture has a wealth of experience working on contemporary, historic and listed properties together with those in sensitive locations.
As a practice, we are aware both of the need to limit and mitigate the impact of our actions in order to help in the fight against climate breakdown, and the responsibility that we have in ensuring that our designs improve the sustainability of the built environment.
“The greenest building is the one that already exists”
Carl Elefante, former president of the American Institute of Architects
The re-use and retrofitting of existing buildings is, we believe, one of the most responsible things that we as architects can do to reduce our environmental impact, and is key to our approach.
From the first meeting with Nick and Tobias it was clear that they were as enthused about the project as we were, they listened carefully and helped us develop and see the potential for what Coley could be and supported us every step along the way. They helped us keep the project as low impact as possible with careful advice on sourcing and contractors and were central to an overall team that worked really well together
Tonic Architecture have provided us with full architect and interior design services for the renovation of a Grade I listed Manor House and adjoining estate. The whole team is extremely committed, professional and friendly and are a great addition to any project. They are just as comfortable providing advice on the renovation of 15th century fabric as they are on suggesting modern and innovative design solutions. They have been key to the success of our current project and we look forward to working with them on future projects
