Haworth Tompkins was founded in 1991 in London by architects Graham Haworth and Steve Tompkins.
The studio has designed buildings in the UK and elsewhere for clients across the public, private and subsidised sectors including schools, galleries, theatres, concert halls, housing, offices, shops and factories.
The studio’s buildings are influenced by the specific chemistry of individual places and cultural situations.
The studio puts enormous effort into understanding a building's context and the needs of its users, a process which often yields original or unconventional solutions.
Professionalism and sustainability in the widest sense underpins their creative output.
Their work has won over 50 design awards and is published internationally.
