Studio Bua is an architectural practice with offices in London and Oslo. The studio has to date realised a number of ambitious and concept-driven projects, including the renovation of an Icelandic farmhouse and cultural centre and a transformative urban housing project in Italy.Derived from the Icelandic word for ‘inhabit’, Studio Bua combines both a deep appreciation for quality craftsmanship and mastery of technology with a collaborative, hands-on approach, working to refine and elevate everyday spaces in the belief that it is our immediate surroundings that inform not just who we are, but how best we can live.
Mark Smyth is an Irish architect and interior designer with extensive residential experience. He founded Bua while working at award-winning London studio The Manser Practice, where he has led demanding projects ranging in scale from one-off private residences nestled in the English countryside to high-rise mixed-use developments in the heart of London.
