Hawkins/Brown

Architects from 159 St John Street, London, United Kingdom
Hawkins\Brown asks questions, listens carefully and then thinks hard before putting pen to paper. Architecture is not an exercise in drawing that remains an empty vision. Architecture must be a real, built experience that can only come to life as people explore and inhabit a building.

Uniquely, Hawkins\Brown is a signature practice that gets repeat work. It is possible to create really exciting and remarkable buildings by engaging with the users, funders and the community rather than by merely refining a house style.

Architecture is a pragmatic, negotiated, commercial, mediated and compromised art. Buildings are truly a collective effort with the architect acting as a critical figure in inspiring and motivating the different players in each stage of the process.
