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. The award-winning practice specialises in high quality deliverable design, offering a complete architectural and interiors service from inception, concept design, statutory approvals, contractor procurement, to management on-site — all the way to post completion.
A rigorous commercial approach is the hallmark of the practice, driven by the Directors’ understanding and experience of the residential market and real estate investment arena. A favourite amongst developers and investors, Jo Cowen Architects have become known for their ability to maximise the value of a site whilst keeping a keen eye on risk and viability. Their hands-on approach includes managing key stakeholders throughout the project, offering clear direction and driving the project forward through every stage to realise the clients’ vision.
Chartered by the Royal Institute of British Architects, an industry gold standard, Jo Cowen Architects combine high quality deliverable design with commercial acumen and are widely considered to be one of the most exciting architectural practices to emerge in recent years.
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.
