From the outset, Azman Architects gained recognition as a pioneering practice, with a reputation for clean-cut, contemporary design and minimalist remodelling of period properties.
Bold interventions helped them change the face of older housing to deliver contemporary living. Their first project - the refurbishment of a Grade II listed house in 1995 – was described by the National press as ‘innovative and ground-breaking’ and led to a series of comprehensive refurbishments across London. This included the RIBA award nominated two-storey glass extension for Isabella Blow and the RIBA and Civic Trust Award winning ‘concrete house’, a private home built in North London.
As well as residential work, Azman Architects has worked on a number of impressive commercial office and retail projects.
The practice’s philosophy of delivering projects that are personal to the client, whilst still reflecting the practice’s vision for a contemporary solution, is also utilised for these large-scale projects.
The practise secured a commission with the Victoria and Albert Museum, designing an exhibition for a retrospective of the work of iconic British designer Vivienne Westwood, and also created the café at the Royal Institute of British Architects.
