Azman Architects is an award-winning practice with an outstanding reputation for building striking contemporary residential and retail buildings, remodelling private homes and designing bespoke furniture.
The practice, run by Ferhan Azman, built the flagship store for the British designer Alexander McQueen, and designed the exhibitions for the retrospective show of Vivienne Westwood’s work at the Victoria and Albert Museum and the Communicate exhibition at the Barbican Gallery.
The Azman team has built new homes and factories in Oxfordshire, Alderburgh, North London and Turkey and refurbished a private villa at Cap d’Antibes. The practice has also designed a range of furniture, which sit well with its refurbishments, and are particularly suitable for the UK’s older housing stock.
Azman created the cafe at the Royal Institute of British Architects, which was described by Amanda Baillieu, former editor of the RIBA Journal, as '...what better advertisement for architecture than a project that is not simply an elegant transformation of the space, but is also on time and on budget...'
The London-based practice was awarded the RIBA Award as well as a Civic Trust Award for the 'concrete house', a private home built in North London, and was named in the next generation award index of best practices by the Architecture Foundation in 2007.
Azman creates spaces that are designed to reflect the specific brief of the client and the context of the building rather than following trends. The projects that the practice have completed have been widely recognised and published around the world in leading journals and architectural books.
