We are PiM.studio, a London-based team of Architects with a global outlook, fresh ideas and big ambitions.
We work on architecture, urban design and beyond.
We go beyond what is expected of us in everything we do. We’ve lived and worked in many different places – Italy, France, Japan, China, the Netherlands, the US, Switzerland, the UK – and this has given us broad horizons and a perspective unhampered by preconceptions. Our minds are open, and we believe that almost anything is possible.
We also feel strongly that the very best buildings sit happily in their context. Place is always our starting point. We love the feeling of arriving at a new site – in a new city or even a new country – and seeing it with fresh eyes. We take nothing for granted about a place but immerse ourselves in it, researching it thoroughly and from every angle. Out of this process comes a design that responds to its context and belongs.
We approach both big and small projects with the same passion, and every project is alive with possibility. We’re not confined by expectation or by precedent. Instead, every project is unlike any other, and our track record shows where an open mind and intelligent research can take us. We’ve led large international teams to deliver complex buildings, we’ve worked on urban master plans, and we’ve created museums and galleries, pavilions and temporary exhibition spaces, universities, schools, private houses and artists’ studios.
Whatever the project, and whatever the scale, we work closely with our clients at every stage – from that initial conversation, through construction and beyond. In every case, we find the best answer to the very specific question that the client and the site present us with, bringing together finely crafted details, natural materials and the latest technology. And then we go one step further to include something fresh and unexpected.
We have the experience, energy and sensitivity to create warm, welcoming spaces which invite you to use them in ways you might never have imagined.
