The Collaborative Office of Research and Design (CORD) is a London-based architecture and design studio founded in 2016 by architect Germano Di Chello to combine architecture, art and research in order to produce innovative design solutions to projects large and small.

An emphasis is placed on research during the design of every project from the initial concept development through to detailed design.  A thorough and ongoing investigation of each project’s requirements is embraced to inform contextual and carefully crafted solutions.
