Allford Hall Monaghan Morris designs buildings that are enjoyable to use, satisfying to look at and easy to understand. These are places that flourish over time, and it is a methodology that has garnered the practice a collection of devoted clients, and a plethora of praise and accolades. In 2015, the firm was awarded the RIBA Stirling prize. Through a deep understanding of uses and users, AHMM bring a heroic pragmatism to the design of spaces and places for the public. They have designed a range of arts and exhibition projects that share an architectural ambition of being at once coherent and engaging. This is evident from their extensive portfolio that spans iconic residences and master planning – from Google’s new headquarters at King’s Cross, to the recent redevelopment of Television Centre. Undertaking one of west London’s most important developments of 2018, director Paul Monaghan has led its transformation with precision and a keen understanding of quality of life at the heart of his philosophy.
“We believe in making places as well as buildings. Television Centre is full of character, it was important for our vision to retain the personality of the original tiling and mosaics, and all the features that made this such a remarkable place to begin with.” – Paul Monaghan
