Architect’s Statement
Raw Architecture Workshop is a young, award-winning, London-based studio, founded in 2010. Directors Christopher McHale and Graeme Laughlan’s core values include rigour, determination, ambition, entrepreneurialism, common sense, high production standards and the desire to stretch beyond the brief. The studio does not pursue any particular theories or styles through the work, but instead the focus is on solving problems and designing great buildings to work specifically for each client. Function definitely comes first. RAW was also selected for Wallpaper* Magazine 2014 Architects Directory, ‘a finely tuned index of the world’s best young architectural talent’.

Architect’s Statement
What makes our buildings and projects both original and notable is the absence of a statement, the lack of an ego, the way they fit into their culture, the economy and attention to detail. All GBA projects are original solutions to particular problems. We take into consideration the surroundings, the local traditions, the weather and the available light and to make the most of each site we work with. We are a small, flexible firm, able to design and supervise construction anywhere in the world, from a prize-winning family house in Notting Hill to the Lubetkin Prize winner for Casa KiKé in Costa Rica.

Architect’s Statement
DSDHA’s architecture is always evolving, and for us each project is a bespoke response to a unique brief through dialogue with our clients. Our approach is always focused, sustainable and elegant. We aim to create delight wherever we can in the architecture we design. Trust, respect and integrity shape the relationships we develop with clients, stakeholders and collaborators. We carefully balance the risks and opportunities of a project through our expertise, commitment and patience. Our research into new and existing methods, materials and technologies is complemented by our rewarding experience of collaboration with a network of specialists. Our approach enables each project to achieve its fullest potential, whether the outcome is a single building or a master plan.

Architect’s Statement
Murray Kerr founded London-based Denizen Works in early 2011 as a collaborative studio to develop projects of different scales that are founded in an understanding of place. The approach that ties our thoughts together is a desire to create work that taps into local history, landscape, culture and microclimate. Once these fields of investigation have been explored, along with in-depth client briefing, we begin to develop our ideas. We believe projects of all scales, types and location can be successfully approached in this way delivering architecture of the highest quality, buildings that are personal and spaces that are both functional and inspiring.

Studio 54 Architecture is a vibrant practice offering committed, thoughtful and creative design, working particularly within the London area. A wealth of experience combined with fresh thinking, structures a design approach which values collaboration and debate. We believe in robust design solutions with a real understanding of traditional and new materials, their relationship to one another, their function, their beauty and how they can be sensitively bought together. Our workload is deliberately varied; we are constantly refreshing our knowledge and are excited by new challenges. We design sustainable, well crafted and engaging architecture.

Architect’s Statement
MJP Architects specialises in projects on sensitive sites, which involve delicate planning negotiations and high quality design to achieve consent. Our designs do not have a recognisable style ‘signature’, although they share spatial, formal and technical themes, particularly an interest in historical precedents and an innovative approach to structure and the use of materials. MJP has achieved 24 Civic Trust Awards and 21 RIBA Awards. Its work has been published in major UK architectural titles, including The Architectural Review, Architecture Today, Architects’ Journal, Building and Building Design, as well as magazines in Germany, Japan, Italy, China and the United States.

Architect’s Statement
TDO architecture was founded in 2010 with a one-off commission for Wallpaper* Magazine. The studio has since grown to design and deliver exceptional buildings and collaborations at a variety of scales with a team of carefully selected and talented designers. The three founding partners work together on the concept design phase of each project, reflecting a unique, collaborative working relationship extending back to their shared training and particular vision for the highest-quality 21st-century architecture. Paired with a focus on client relationships, the results are buildings that exceed expectations as well as numerous collaborations with leading artists and designers in parallel fields.
