This is our story

Absolute Architecture is a RIBA Chartered Practice, founded by Kate Cooper in 2008. Our mission is to create dream homes that exceed expectations. Kate was joined in 2017 by Roger Scully.  Now supported by a team of 3. Absolute Architecture remains focused on the local area – we tend to stay within a 45 mile radius of Newbury. This allows us to provide a high-quality, hands on service; creating homes with real architectural merit that are environmentally sustainable, reflect our clients’ personal style and are a joy to live in.

Years of local service

Meet our lead architects

Managing partners Kate Cooper and Roger Scully are our talented lead architects. For both, every project is personal. They like to work collaboratively with clients and between them lead every project, supported by their dedicated team of architectural assistants, designers, planners and project managers.

Kate Cooper

Managing partner and founder

MA Hons Architecture, Dip Arch, RIBA, RIAS

Utilising her local expertise and sustainability knowledge, Kate Cooper is passionate about helping homeowners achieve a better way of living by designing bespoke residential homes. She has a real passion for local vernacular and period architecture, having spent formative years completing sensitive, surgical conservation and restoration work. She also developed a real soft spot for transforming mid-century homes when she renovated her own post-war, ugly duckling into a contemporary eco home and studio. Unable to resist another personal project, she is now embarking on a holiday home in the Isle of Wight.

Though her passion is for home architecture in the areas surrounding her childhood village, Kate has worked all over the world managing multimillion pound projects in the leisure, retail and healthcare sectors. Before returning to Newbury with her young family to set up Absolute Architecture, Kate worked for leading architectural firms in Edinburgh, Seville and London.

Kate is a regular contributor for industry leading publications, including Home Building and Renovating magazine and 25 Beautiful homes. She is the treasurer of the Royal Society of Berkshire Architects and has served as a sustainability judge for the RIBA Design Awards.

Roger Scully

Managing partner

BA Hons Architecture, Dip Arch, ARB

Like Kate, Roger Scully takes a collaborative approach to home construction and is passionate about working intimately with homeowners and local suppliers to establish great relationships that foster innovative ideas and solutions. Roger particularly enjoys reimagining existing buildings and has a proven track record of securing contentious planning consents. His expertise shines in surgical interventions that better realise the potential of period dwellings as well as stunning contemporary extensions that completely transform the whole home. He is also passionate about carbon neutral, passive house design and healthy and sustainable buildings are a preoccupation of his.

Roger has extensive residential architecture and building experience, particularly in the Wiltshire and South Oxfordshire area. When Roger joined Kate as managing partner in 2017, the two quickly found a rhythm and synergy that has resulted in truly fresh and innovative home designs.

Roger has two young sons and is a passionate musician. His growing family and instrument collection have led him to embark on a personal project to add much needed additional space to his own home in Wiltshire.
