An award-winning practice whose sculptural, light-filled and fluid structures places them firmly at the fore of contemporary design.
New York-born and London-raised Seth Stein kicked off his architectural career at the practices of Richard Rogers and Norman Foster before setting up his own practice in 1990. The projects are characteristically known for their understated luxury, minimalist design and a contemporary flair. Whether its a new-built coastal retreat in Turks & Caicos Islands or a restored historic urban townhouse in the metropolis of London, Seth Stein Architects’ pared down approach has earned the practice an international reputation as a master of materials and detailing.
Non-residential projects have ranged from the Baltic restaurant in Southwark to a chic equestrian centre in Australia, which won an Australian Institute of Architects Sir Osborn McCutcheon award for commercial architecture. The accolades don’t stop there. The House in Cornwall, the House in Somerset and Pencalenick House have swept up awards and cemented their international reputation. Underpinned by a strong sense of place, Seth Stein Architects engages with local context to craft spaces that are at once sympathetic to and stand out from their surroundings.
