About Us

JBKS Architects was formed in 2004. The two founding directors were formally of Maguire & Co Architects, which closed earlier the same year. Some of the projects illustrated here were Maguire & Co projects, in which case credit is given to that company. Some were taken over and completed by JBKS Architects.

From our rural Oxfordshire studio, we work throughout the UK, specialising in Church projects and other buildings to serve the Christian community. These include community buildings and Christian adventure centres, schools, colleges and universities.

In 2015 the company name was changed to Mission Design Studio, but for various reasons the trading name remains JBKS Architects.

The emphasis is on excellence in design, with the aim of providing clients with beautiful buildings to meet practical needs, derived from a thorough understanding of the vision and which meet budget constraints.

Our reputation depends upon consistency, both in the level of service we provide and the quality of the finished product. Our staff are a wonderful team of creative and dedicated professionals, making the office a most enjoyable place to work. The integrity of the design process is backed up by a team of consultants with whom we regularly work, to provide a talented multi-disiplinary design team to project manage each scheme from start to finish.
