Autor: Hugh Strange Architects
Hugh Strange Architects is a recently formed, award-winning practice based in London with a developing reputation for well-crafted buildings that marry innovative construction with a sensitive approach to site conditions.The practice has a keen interest in precise contextual responses and has a strong track record of delivering innovative – and often surprising – buildings on sensitive urban and rural sites. This expertise is reflected in a series of commissions for and around Hadspen House, a Grade II listed Country House in Somerset including the Architecture Archive, which was nominated for the 2015 European Prize for Contemporary Architecture – Mies van der Rohe Award and won RIBA National and Regional Awards. The practice is currently collaborating with the renowned Portuguese architect Alvaro Siza on a project adjacent to the Architecture Archive, a white concrete sculpted canopy that will link two agricultural silos that we are converting into a private library and store for architectural models. Prior to establishing his practice, Hugh Strange studied at Edinburgh University, graduating in 1994, and worked for practices in London, Vienna and Berlin.
