James Gorst Architects


An architecture practice producing technically sophisticated and rigorously detailed designs since 1981.

Providing a uniquely tailored architectural service, James Gorst Architects has completed properties from listed townhouses to large contemporary residences in the British countryside and beyond. With a wealth of experience in gaining planning permission and consent for challenging sites, they have produced some of the largest new residences in the UK. Plus, the refurbishment of Royal Exchange in the City of London, and the construction of a new Orthodox chapel in Mykonos, Greece.

Through completion of a wide-range of projects, they have earned a reputation for sensitive and technically sophisticated work. There is a restrained control in their work, which seeks always an enduring effect based upon workmanship and craft. Rigorously detailed, their network of professionals and craftsmen always ensures the highest quality of workmanship. The studio also works closely with the world of furniture and interior design, regularly collaborating with artists and designers to produce interiors that match their award winning architecture.


A sensitive approach towards the subtle intimacies of the interior is as important as the ability to handle the challenge of architectural form.
