The Partners


David combines material experimentation with knowledge of construction. He is involved with every project in the studio where he is continuously refining the design of simple and elegant assembly details. This is evident in the multi award winning Ancient Party Barn.

David studied under Tom Holbrook, Peter Carl and Dalibor Vasely at Churchill College, Cambridge. He began working in international design studio Studio Daniel Libeskind in Berlin before returning to London to complete his part II and work in small, design-led practices.

David has been a monthly contributor to BD Magazine and has written for the AJ, Architecture Today & AR. He has lectured at the good homes alliance and The New City, Wallpaper* lecture series. David is a keen cyclist and recently completed Cycle to Cannes.  



Shortlisted in 2012 for the AJ Emerging Woman Architect of the Year Award, Sophie combines Conservation specialism (she is an RIBA Conservation Registrant) with experience of on-site delivery of construction projects.

Her architectural imagination was sparked through painting at the Slade school of fine art. Exhibited at Tate Britain, her work explored the materiality of industrial structures. Sophie studied at The Bartlett followed by RCA. Her thesis project was shortlisted for the RIBA Silver Medal, won the Thames & Hudson school Prize and the Will Alsop award for Urbanism.

She has gained a breadth of experience at a variety of award winning architect and urban design studios ranging for the multi national EDAW, international Foster & Partners down to establishing the small & bespoke Carl Turner Architects, a design & build practice where she gained planning for the 2013 Manser Medal winner, Slip House.

Sophie is an external part 3 examiner and is part of the London School of Architecture (LSA) practice network.
