Firm DescriptionOurs is a small practice, so you can be assured of the personal attention of Henning Stummel. We listen, and we are happy to develop the brief together with you! We develop our schemes with the help of models, which we build in-house. Models help us to really work on and visualize ideas. This empowers clients, convinces planners and ensures clear communication.
Henning brings to his practice a wide breadth of knowledge through his education at the TH Darmstadt, ETH in Zurich, as well as collaborations with Norman Foster (1992-93) and David Chipperfield (1993 to 2000).
Henning has lectured and taught at various places, including directing a design unit at Cambridge University.
Eliana Sousa joined the practice in 2009. Previously she studied architecture at Faculdade de Arquitectura da Universidade do Porto (1999-2006) and worked with Alvaro Siza Vieira and Carlos Castanheira (2007-2009). She attained her Part III at the Bartlett School in 2013.
The practice has been published internationally and received numerous awards such as a Housing Design Award (2004), Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) Building of the Year: London Region 2005. It reached the finalist stage for the RIBA Stephen Lawrence Award in 2005. The practice has also been awarded the 2008 Daily Telegraph/Homebuilding and Renovating Award and the 2009 Grand Designs Award for ‘Best Conversion’.
Recently our project, "The Workshop" was featured on Grand Designs. Kevin’s McCloud’s summary:
