Prior to founding PUP Theo, Chloe and Steve worked for leading architecture and design companies in Switzerland, Spain and the UK including on projects such as Award winning Gantenbein winery in Switzerland, refurbishment of No.1 Court at Wimbledon Tennis Club in London and the Mailings housing development in Newcastle, Supreme Winner of the Housing Design Awards . We have a wide range of project experience from the design of houses to public buildings, exhibitions and interiors, to physically building one-off structures. We use this expertise to our advantage in order to foster a diversity of projects within our own studio.
Our practice has gained recognition over the last 3 years through a series of competition wins, commissions and experimental projects where our ideas have been tested and developed. We are now taking on larger architectural commissions but the innovative approach to materials developed in our early projects still drives our decision making. At the centre of our work is the belief that architecture has a unique ability to bring people together. We aim to make projects that have a positive impact in the world putting the individuals and quality of life at the centre of sustainable buildings.
We consider ourselves to be good listeners, adept at identifying problems and creating solutions. We aim to make beautiful, functional and useful things, always with the ambition of imbuing high quality at each stage throughout our rigorous design process.
PUP projects have been published widely online and in print. We were recently profiled in the Architects Journal as part of their New Practice series. In 2016 we were selected by a jury of critics to be included in the Architecture Foundation hardback, New Architects 3. The publication was billed as ' the definitive survey of the best British architects to have set up practice in the last ten years'.
