Our Journey

Concrete is one of the most widely consumed materials on the planet; it’s ubiquitous in our daily lives. It’s used in the largest buildings in the world, yet it’s also used to make incredibly delicate and beautiful objects. This paradox makes concrete a truly remarkable yet often misunderstood material.

With decades of experience and technical knowledge already acquired from working within the concrete industry we decided to embark on a voyage of discovery, a mission to truly explore the boundaries of this remarkable material.

What we discovered opened up a new world of possibilities; it changed the way we think about concrete and in that moment Concrete Design Studios was born.
