Burd Haward Architects

AJ Corus 40 Under 40


After studying together in the 1980s, Buddy Haward and Catherine Burd set up in practice 10 years ago, working alongside Lucy Marston as directors of Burd Haward Marston Architects from 1998-2004. They recently reformed as Burd Haward Architects, adapting their method of practice to accommodate life with their two young children and to pursue activities adjacent to the business of architecture: teaching, writing, building and travelling.

They have worked on a range of project types, from public and private housing, schools and offices, to churches, a golf club and an art gallery. Their Brooke Coombes House won a number of awards, including an RIBA award and the Manser Medal for Best One-Off House in 2002. The practice is currently working on several new houses for private clients, including a zero-carbon-emission home on a green-belt site in Buckinghamshire and an eco-villa in the south of France.

They aim to make buildings that are technically inventive, socially generous and environmentally sustainable, with a clarity of idea and purpose legible in their layout, form and detail.
