Practice Profile

Hampson Williams is an established RIBA architectural practice located near London Bridge. We build places for living, working, playing, and learning. Our process is pragmatic and driven by design.

We strive to innovate, whatever the context. Our philosophy for a sustainable framework for spatial design harnesses light, manipulates surface, embraces emerging technologies, utilises appropriate materials and exceed client expectation. We imagine, develop design, generate technical solutions, manage contracts, and deliver completed projects.

We build great space.

Hampson Williams was founded in 2001 by director Christopher Hampson and is an RIBA chartered practice. The studio has been widely recognised for its work, winning an RIBA award for Glass and Timber houses in Dulwich which formed part of Channel 4’s Grand Design series.
