Meet the HB Studios Team

Patrick Bateman, Designer, Maker, Artist

Having studied Fine Art and Sculpture in London and in the U.S.A. Patrick worked on design and build projects for both designers and private clients in London and the South West last century and through the first decade of this one. Patrick met Charlotte and decided to start building and working on his own projects and designs through H.B. Studios. The design aesthetics and art cultures of the U.K., U.S.A,  Japan and Denmark have helped him come to appreciate beautifully designed furniture, their designers, and a desire to build things that will endure.

Charlotte comes from a production management background within the TV Production and Live Events industries. Having worked in London for several years, she decided to make the move down to Somerset just before H.B. Studios was formed and help Patrick to set up the business. Charlotte manages all operational aspects for the company.

Nina Hanbury Bateman, Quality Control

Nina is in charge of choosing the finest offcuts of wood for her to chew on in the workshop. Only the very best pieces are selected for gnawing and other than an unquenchable passion for chasing balls, wood is undeniably up there in her top favourite things. Always present by Patrick’s side in the workshop, Nina is a true asset to the HB Studios Team.

HB Studios have worked for clients all over the UK. From as far as Scotland and Yorkshire, to nearby Somerset and Devon, we also have a large client base in London. We are happy to travel near and far for exciting projects of all shapes and sizes.
