Ferhan Azman is an award-winning architect and furniture designer. Since 1993, she has built and remodelled homes and commercial spaces internationally, gaining a reputation for bold interventions, clean-cut contemporary forms and confident solutions at once sensitive and striking. In 2003, she founded the practice Azman Architects.


Whether refurbishing a Grade II listed house or designing the iconic Vivienne Westwood exhibition for the V&A, Azman’s work consistently results in critical acclaim and industry recognition, including a RIBA award nomination for a two-storey glass extension for Isabella Blow. She received both RIBA and Civic Trust awards for Concrete House, a private home in North London.


In addition to bringing innovative, refined refurbishments to period properties, Ferhan Azman has helped define eminent brands such as Alexander McQueen through their retail environments. Her aptitude for navigating the requirements of designing publicly-used space led to the commission to create the café at the Royal Institute of British Architects.

Regardless of scale — from furniture to factories — each project undertaken by Ferhan Azman builds on a predominant catalytic idea — one honed in collaboration with the client through meticulous attention to detail, a commitment to timelessness and a profound understanding of both context and brief.
