New practices: Lyndon Goode Architects

  • Comment

The latest in a series of practice profiles looking at architects who have recently decided to go it alone

Lyndon Goode Architects, Smithfield Market, London

Main peopleSimon Goode and David Lyndon

Founded 2012

Where have you come from?
Simon worked at John McAslan on King’s Cross station and the British Embassy in Algiers. David came from Haworth Tompkins.

What work do you have?
Recent projects have included a comedy venue in London, a refurbishment of the Royal Court Theatre’s undercroft, and a high street renewal programme with Islington. We were very fortunate to be selected by Peabody for its housing framework, and by Pocket Living to look at homes for emerging families. We also just won a fantastic competition for the North London YMCA.

What are your ambitions?
To be known as architects that are able to work closely with the client, consultant and contractor teams, to minimise delivery risks and achieve high quality output.

What are the biggest challenges you have faced as a start-up?
It took Simon to break his ankle (and be housebound for the summer) to get our website built … finding the time for non-project work can be really difficult.

Which recent scheme has inspired you most? 
Teshima Art Museum, by Ryue Nishizawa.

How are you marketing yourselves?
Most of our work has come through word of mouth. For the high street regeneration, David and I met every shopkeeper in Archway!
