. About

Working within the fields of architecture and landscape, LANDROOM has created a unique body of work marked by its sensitivity to places ‘as found’. The practice has won international recognition for its built projects in sensitive landscape contexts, characterised by an attention to material and detailed construction, and an informed, yet radical response to the natural and cultural heritage of these landscape settings.

The full portfolio of work includes small buildings, landscape conservation and access projects, green space strategies and urban master plans: The practice's largest project, the nature reserve on the Thames marshes at Rainham was awarded a special mention in the European Prize for Urban Public Space (2014), following a national award from the Royal Institute of British Architects for the Marshland Discovery Zone at Purfleet (2011). The practice was a leading contributor to the award winning East London Green Grid green-space planning strategy (Landscape Institute Presidents Award 2009). The London Development Agency has appointed the practice to advise on urban masterplanning projects including large-scale industrial sites in east London, at Beam Reach and Dagenham Dock, and more recently in the Royal Docks.
