Gumuchdjian Architects – Practice Information
Architect studio based in London, southeast England, led by Philip Gumuchdjian
According th this design studio, their approach is thus:
“We pursue an intuitive approach that is driven by context and local culture. We develop designs that fuse buildings into their context. We aim to deliver surprising yet culturally rooted buildings that enhance the wider public realm, that create a sense of place and that engage the passer-by.
We seek to distill complex problems into simple conceptual or architectural propositions. Our starting point is the understanding of the context and identifying relevant building types, new and ancient that we refine and thoroughly modernise. Our buildings inhabit a place between the familiar and the unexpected, a quality that includes and intrigues.”
