New Practices #18: Pippa Nissen Studio

  • Comment

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

Pippa Nissen Studio, London EC2

Founded: February 2010

Main people: Pippa Nissen with Tetsuro Nagata and lighting designer Zerlina Hughes.

Where have you come from? Pippa was previously one half of Nissen Adams.

What work do you have? Our ambition is to work on a variety of projects, from architecture to film, exhibition and theatre work. Currently we are working on a film for a series of concerts at the Southbank Centre; some installations for the Aldeburgh Festival in Suffolk; a new-build eco-house in Bedford; and extensions to houses in London and Surrey. We have been shortlisted to pitch for a major London exhibition and we continue teaching a diploma unit at Kingston University.

What are your ambitions? In the short term we will keep the practice small to medium-sized, working on bespoke projects to suit individual clients’ needs. We would like to become known for projects with an element of collaboration, and we want to continue working on small-scale arts-based projects, as well as larger, more commercial projects.

How optimistic are you? It is an exciting moment to be starting a company in a different way; Pippa can draw from her experiences of running a small, successful partnership. The economic climate does seem to be improving, and we are finding that clients are responding to a personal approach.
