New Practices #40: Gluckman Smith

The latest in a series of practice profiles looking at architects who have recently decided to go it alone, either through choice or redundancy

Gluckman Smith, London W14

Founded: April 2010

Main people: Robert Gluckman and Tom Smith

Where have you come from? Robert was an architect at Squire and Partners, while Tom was principal at TWS Architecture.

What work do you have? We have a number of residential projects in London, Gloucestershire and the Scottish Highlands, and we’ve advised on the design aspects of UK-wide renewable energy projects. We are particularly interested in projects where it is possible to engage with the landscape, focusing on the interaction between buildings and their contexts.

What are your ambitions? We want to continue delivering a bespoke level of service to our clients, with an emphasis on enduring design quality. We aim to expand steadily in the coming years, establishing a sound and stable practice philosophy and effective systems for successful project delivery.

How optimistic are you? In our experience so far, the residential sector is buoyant, but we’re conscious that more significant opportunities may lie in sectors such as energy and renewables. We sought advice from a broad spectrum of professionals about our new practice. We’re a relatively lean business and we’ll remain mindful of this as we expand and take on bigger projects.
