About us Profile
‘Patalab is an award-winning architecture practice, pursuing innovative design inspired by celebrating life around us.
Founded in 2008 with offices in London and Berlin, the studio designs distinctive contemporary spaces for a wide range of clients in the UK, Germany and across Europe. Completed work includes a number of acclaimed award-winning schemes: Heath House and Cascade House in Hampstead; The Gables in Primrose Hill; and Marconi House in central London.
The studio enjoys transforming existing buildings for new uses as well as delivering innovative and site-specific new build projects. By juxtaposing traditional architectural styles with modern interventions we produce sensitive but powerful designs that compliment their context. Striking exteriors and beautifully proportioned interiors are accentuated by rich materiality, attention to detail and exceptional craftsmanship, attributes our studio is known for.
Inspired by ‘Pataphysics – a philosophical and artistic movement dedicated to exploring the imaginary – the studio is interested in the poetic potential of architecture. The bold, and sometimes experimental use of materials, exemplifies this in ‘Patalab’s pursuit of an architecture that is a joy to inhabit.
‘Patalab is a chartered practice of the Royal Institute of British Architects.
