New Practices #21: Ben Adams Architects

  • 1 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

Ben Adams Architects, London, SE1

Founded: February 2010

Main people: Ben Adams, Nicholas Jewell and Julia Hamson

Where have you come from? Ben was previously one half of Nissen Adams, and also worked at Allford Hall Monaghan Morris.

What work do you have? Our aim is to work on everything from mixed-use schemes to offices, retail and art galleries, plus small, medium and large residential projects and large-scale urbanism. We have just completed a studio space for Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios on Tottenham Court Road, London.

What are your ambitions? We would like to become a practice numbering about 50, based in central London with a regional or overseas presence if necessary. We offer innovation at each stage of a project: in gathering the brief, in early conceptual thinking, and all the way through to completion. Clarity is another touchstone: clear vision at the outset with careful representation of ideas during design development. It is our aim to combine innovation, clarity, design excellence and delight with a helping of commercial nous.

How optimistic are you? We have a sunny outlook. We are noticing the beginning of the end of this recession; clients are starting new projects. Our expertise in working with existing buildings is useful at a time when many clients are thinking of refitting and extending.
