Company Description

Stanhope Gate Architecture is an internationally renowned practice established in 2002. The firm specialises in new build, masterplanning and refurbishment of listed and historic buildings, and collegiate, hotel and resort projects, both in the UK and abroad.

The working philosophy of the practice and our unique approach revolves around the guiding principles and innate wisdom of classical and vernacular architecture in perfect harmony with contemporary requirements.

The focus of every one of our projects remains the marriage of the modern with classical ideals, the creation of a sense of place and imbuing the built form with human scale through the quality of the architecture and detail, maintaining the relationship between the craft of building and the art of architecture.

The range of commissions in the UK comprises masterplanning of major estates, new residential villas and apartment buildings, refurbishments and major extensions of Grade I and II buildings in Central London.

Projects internationally include major masterplans of planned communities, new-build hotels and residences.

Our office is flexible and made up of a lot of all-rounders.  It’s an international, dynamic office—about 75% of our projects are in London, and we are also concept architects for some overseas projects.  We do not pigeon-hole people doing repetitive work.  The structure of the office is thus:

One principal.  Three directors, Three Associates, and the rest of the total 21 people are architects/job runners/Part 2’s.  (Also, two admin staff).  At any given time, we might have 12-15 projects, and these are spearheaded by the three Directors, so any given Director has 4-5 projects under his/her wing.  Each project also has a job runner that is dedicated to the job and runs it day to day, from beginning of the project to the end.   We do not have a conveyor belt of any sort, so that means one is truly aware of the issues from start to finish.
