West Architecture, founded in 2006 by Graham West, is an award-winning practice based in London, working on residential, commercial and public buildings. The studio believes in logical, rational design that uncovers beauty through elegant problem solving, striking a balance between artistry and technical ability.
We have deep experience in adapting and repurposing historic structures, with a strong belief that the character of a building can be retained without the need to compromise on efficient and beautiful spaces. We embrace the constraints that others might avoid and make them an equal partner in the design process. We use beautiful materials which respect the surrounding context and their viability to fulfil a fundamental purpose. Our completed work reflects our conviction that existing buildings can be preserved, re-used and repurposed for modern needs, with a light touch going a long way.
Our design ethos is influenced by global architecture with contributions over the years from a team of many nationalities and a client base from all over the world. We are passionate about delivering design which transcends borders, producing buildings which are international in outlook whilst being grounded in their context. Our design approach, our clients’ backgrounds and existing building fabric are celebrated and combined to create our own unique brand of architecture.
