Practice Profile

'Patalab is a London-based architectural studio founded in 2008 designing distinctive contemporary spaces for a wide range of private, public and corporate clients in the UK, Germany and across Europe. The studio’s completed work includes a number of acclaimed award-winning schemes: Cascade House in Hampstead; The Gables in Primrose Hill; and Marconi House in central London.

 

The studio enjoys transforming existing buildings for new uses in a way that respectfully juxtaposes traditional architectural styles with modern design interventions. ‘Patalab also designs innovative, site-specific new build projects of all scales across multiple sectors. The architects are known for their refined, striking exteriors and beautifully proportioned, crafted interiors characterised by rich materiality and attention to detail with exceptional levels of workmanship.

 

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 for the everyday that nonetheless feels special by celebrating life around us.
