About Hawkins\Brown ArchitectsVisit Website
Hawkins Brown is a London based architectural practice formed in 1988 by Roger Hawkins and Russell Brown.
We are a creative progressive award-winning studio that has a reputation as one of the leading design based architectural practices in the UK. Hawkins Brown has never limited its architecture to a particular style type or scale of work. We bring a bespoke collaborative approach to our projects and a determinedly broad experience of building universities, schools, transport, housing, offices and arts projects across the UK and increasingly in Europe and further afield.
In 2010 we published Ideas Exchange: The Collaborative Studio of Hawkins Brown, presenting the recent work of the practice, communicating our philosophy that architecture benefits from the contributions of and collaboration with the wider team, including engineers, clients, artists, other architects and designers.
Our work is regularly in the Media; published in the design press, local and national papers and in international magazines. In addition Roger and Russell regularly contribute to and write for a number of architectural magazines and increasingly have been broadcast on television and radio.
At Hawkins Brown, we nurture creativity and enthusiasm in many ways but principally by maintaining an exciting, supportive, interactive working environment.
In 2013 we moved to our new studio at 159 St John Street. The conversion of this former lift factory has enabled us to create a studio tailored to us, with ample indoor bike storage, showers, a canteen as well as a variety of flexible work spaces. The open plan environment is split into quiet desk spaces, and more lively breakout areas for collaboration.
Many of the furniture types, meetings pods, high backed sofas, quiet laptop arm chairs, are similar to those we recommend to clients – so now we can bring them into the studio to try them out.
We also have four bespoke meeting rooms, and a well equipped model making room, ensuring we can inspire creativity in many different ways.
