Jo Cowen Architects work across a range of residential, commercial, hotel and mixed use projects with a reputation for bringing both a personal touch and a wealth of experience to each and every project. We offer a complete architectural and interiors service from inception, concept design, statutory approvals, contractor procurement, to management on-site — all the way to post completion. We are chartered by the Royal Institute of British Architects, a gold standard in the industry.

What makes our practice different is the way we approach our clients. We view every project we work on as a joint venture, where our role is to deploy our expertise and skill to realise our clients’ vision. We are an approachable, hands-on team, and will guide a project through every stage from first thoughts to final sign-off. Rather than enforcing a practice style, we tailor each brief to the tastes and particular lifestyle requirements of each client or to the needs of the developer and their target market.

Founding directors Jo Cowen and Chris Wilkinson set out to bring the rigour, high standards and efficiency of large scale practices like Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners, where they both worked for almost a decade, to the wider market. We are proud to have a portfolio spanning from the complete refurbishment and extension of period properties to large scale mixed-use developments across London and further afield.

Our team of architects, designers and architectural assistants are head-hunted from top international firms and are well versed in feasibility, design, construction and management of residential and commercial projects. We share one common goal: to realise our clients’ complex design briefs on time and on budget.

 
 
London does not suffer from a shortage of architects, and in a crowded field, only a small number of firms stand out. I consider Jo Cowen Architects to be one of the very best.
