John Puttick Associates is an architectural studio creating places which are transformative to communities and our built heritage.

The practice is working across the UK on civic, public and community buildings, as well as places of work, from our base in London.

The studio was founded in 2014 with a competition-winning entry for the refurbishment of Preston’s Brutalist bus station, which reopened to the public in 2018 to critical acclaim, demonstrating the practice’s skill in delivering a technically challenging civic project which has secured the future of a Modernist icon.

The studio – which is intentionally small, responsive, and agile – continues to specialise in the reimagining of existing buildings alongside new-build projects and is currently leading the retrofit of a Grade II Listed maltings in Grimsby town centre and the extension of a Grade II* Listed Charles Barry-designed church in Brighton. The practice has developed a long-term relationship with the charity OnSide, and, following the success of Legacy Croydon Youth Zone, is now delivering several youth centres across the UK.

Balancing responsive design with a rigorous approach to construction, the practice prides itself on delivering good value to clients as well as producing highly functional buildings that serve the needs and expectations of those who will use them for years to come. Projects are designed with simplicity and clarity, combined with joy and warmth – qualities expressed in the hand drawings and physical models that form a key part of the practice’s working process.

The work of the practice has received a number of awards including the international 2021 World Monuments Fund/Knoll Modernism Prize, the 2022 Civic Trust Special Award for Reuse and Adaptation, as well as national and regional awards from the Royal Institute of British Architects, the Institute for Historic Building Conservation and the Royal Town Planning Institute.

John Puttick Associates is an RIBA Chartered Practice.

The practice is appointed to the Mayor of London’s Architecture+Urbanism Framework for the design of transport infrastructure.
