PROJECTS_OFFICE_studio_photo.jpg

PROJECTS OFFICE is a young architecture and design studio based in Whitechapel, East London. Our company ethos is fantastic pragmatism: we think laterally, solve problems imaginatively, and take fun seriously.

A multi-disciplinary team, we undertake a broad variety of commissions including those in the residential, arts, healthcare, community, and commercial sectors. Every project we work on demonstrates our investigative process, broad field of influence, and fascination with the challenges of contemporary life.

We believe that collaboration is the key to creativity. We’re design thinkers; learners as well as teachers, participants as well as designers.


FOUNDERS

PROJECTS OFFICE founders Megan, James and Bethan met at the Royal College of Art in 2009. Their shared ethos and contrasting but complementary experience in architecture, design and communications makes them uniquely suited to a broad variety of commissions and collaborations.
