Founded in 2006, Studio Weave is an award-winning RIBA Chartered Architecture Practice based in London. We balance a joyful, open-minded approach with technical precision to create a diverse body of work in the UK and abroad for public, private and commercial clients. We value idiosyncrasies, from the characteristics that make somewhere unique, to the particular skills of a master craftsperson. We aim to harness the strengths of a project and its team to create something distinctive and of exceptional quality. Our work has been acknowledged by numerous awards including RIBA South East Building of the Year 2013 for Ecology of Colour, the Architectural Review’s International Emerging Architecture Awards and the Civic Trust Awards where The Longest Bench won the Special Award for Community Impact and Engagement.
