Haworth Tompkins is an architectural practice based in London. Founded by Graham Haworth and Steve Tompkins in 1991 it has a strong reputation for work in the cultural, urban regeneration, educational and residential sectors. The studio’s buildings are influenced by the specific chemistry of individual places and cultural situations. The team puts enormous effort into understanding a building’s context and the needs of its users, a process which often yields original or unconventional solutions. The studio’s projects include: the National Portrait Gallery, the Victoria and Albert Museum, The London Library, the Royal College of Art, Hallsville Quarter, Chobham Manor, the Olympic Athletes’ Village, the Coin Street Development, The National Theatre, the Young Vic, Aldeburgh Music, Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre, Battersea Arts Centre, the Bush theatre, Theatre Royal Bath and Chichester Festival Theatre. The team’s work has won more than 150 design awards including the 2014 RIBA Stirling Prize for Liverpool’s Everyman theatre.
Sustainable features in the studio’s buildings include green and brown roofs, SUDs and working with landscape architects on creating biodiversity through soft landscaping. Within Haworth Tompkins’ Sustainability Team we have a BREEAM Accredited professional and a registered Passivhaus designer and are always researching new ways to create high quality low energy buildings.
