Block Architecture is a London-based practice established in 1998 by Graeme Williamson and Zoe Smith. The practice works on a diverse range of projects, including bars, restaurants, apartments, houses, shops, hair salons, galleries and office space, as well as arts and exhibition projects. Commissions for larger projects have led to a
70 per cent increase in turnover over the past two years.

The practice has worked in London, New York, Tokyo and Stockholm for clients including Modern Art Oxford, the V&A Museum, the British Council, Tomato, Virgin and fashion designer Hussein Chalayan. Current projects include a £2 million bar/restaurant, a £1 million live/work development in Brighton and a £250,000 office refurbishment in London for media company Glue. It has recently completed and contributed to an exhibition in Glasgow called ‘6000 Miles’.

The partners say they are not interested in developing a ‘style’, but in ‘constantly renewing and challenging our understanding of architecture and its experiential qualities – this is because we enjoy working on new problems that will challenge us’.
