Frazer Haviz


A passionate designer and maker of bespoke furniture, Frazer is experienced with the craft side of architecture. His ecclesiastical background as a chorister at Hereford Cathedral initiated Frazer’s interest in the impact architecture can have on people; their sense of belonging to their environment. During his Part 1 architecture degree at the University of Edinburgh, he became fascinated with architectural tectonics, how small design considerations can have a profound effect on the way we experience spaces. In 2013 Frazer decided to put his experience with making and interest in materials to good use and became part of Orkidstudio’s Mutende team in designing and building a school extension in Zambia’s Copperbelt region. Frazer has now inverted his perspective, applying his learning about micro-scale practices to the macro-scale.
