Team 4 was a British architectural firm, established in 1963 by architecture graduates Su Brumwell, Wendy Cheeseman, Norman Foster and Richard Rogers. Team 4 was dissolved in 1967.
The practice originally included Wendy Cheeseman’s sister Georgie Wolton (née Cheeseman) who, as the only qualified architect of the group, allowed the practice to function. Georgie Cheeseman left after only a few months, leaving the remaining members to try and pass their professional exams while continuing to practice.
Rogers, Foster and Brumwell had first met while studying at Yale University. Rogers and Brumwell later married one another, as did Foster and Wendy Cheeseman.
One of the first projects for Team 4 was a commission from Su Brumwell’s parents, Marcus and Irene Brumwell, to build a new house in Feock, Cornwall, called Creek Vean. They sold a Piet Mondrian painting bought from the artist in the 1930s, to fund the new house. Marcus Brumwell was the founder of the Design Research Unit. Creek Vean took 3 years to construct and was completed in 1966. It became the first ever house to win a R.I.B.A. Award. Creek Vean is a listed building, having been listed Grade II in 1998, and subsequently upgraded to Grade II*.
Team 4 designed Skybreak House in Radlett, Hertfordshire, built between 1965-66.
