Established some 12 years ago by Founding Director Carl Turner, Turner.Works (formerly Carl Turner Architects) take on a wide range of projects – each bringing them together with like-minded people, organisations or communities to create places of purpose that imbue creativity. From shipping containers and car parks to exhibitions, work spaces and residential homes, Turner.Works design from a foundation of forward thinking, with imagination, determination and ambition as their central tenants.
With a highly skilled and multi-faceted team of architects, urban designers, makers and thinkers behind them, Turner.Works rethink spaces and places to create unique buildings to live, work and learn in. Highly energised and intuitively responsive, this design and architectural studio have collected a number of awards over the years, including the AYA Small Project Architect of the Year winners in 2017 and the Royal Institute of British Architect’s Manser Medal for Slip House in 2013.

The Soho-based architecture and design practice, Szczepaniak Astridge, take a research-led approach to their work, prioritising wellbeing and the climate whilst marrying artistic spirit with the strength of science to create ‘Sensory Architecture’.
Szczepaniak Astridge’s approach to the procurement, collaboration and fabrication of their designs results in efficient and affordable outcomes that allow the culture’s they complement to thrive. The practice embrace the ephemeral, and consider it a key component to their designs, as it allows their constructions to change with time, growing into their true depth through their unrepeatable experience.
Szczepaniak Astridge work with ambitious individuals and organisations across the world, taking on all manner of projects – from residential homes to beauty and spa brands, and world-leading technologists – to create spaces that invigorate the senses and balance commercial and emotional value masterfully.
