We believe that great architecture can inject energy into the workplace and also collectively inspire a town’s population, as well as the individual bystander on the outside. A family home should makes its makers proud. Architecture plays a great role in sociology – it can be leading catalyst for urban regeneration. Our clients are a fundamental part of every architectural process which we are involved with. This inherent dialogue and relationship forms a key component in every project we are commissioned to work on.
A beautiful yet functional building will be built on solid foundations. A great society is built on and represented by great architecture. Architectural excellence is our par for the course.

Cohanim Architecture recently secured planning permission and various letters of support for one of the most prominent and prestigious Ecclesiastical buildings in Britain, St Lawrence Church. The church was rebuilt in 1763 by Sir Francis Dashwood, 11th Baron le Despencer. The project ran exceptionally smoothly from inception due to our dedicated and knowledgeable team and close client-side collaboration. This fantastic approach has resulted in letters of approval from English Heritage and other parties, and we have recently broken ground signalling the start of construction.
Other projects in our catalogue of experience include Fann St., Barbican during the project’s early stages whilst at Harper Downie Architects, as well as ‘The Artworks’. The Artworks is a vibrant shipping container scheme in Elephant and Castle. It is built on a section of the site where the soon-to-be-demolished “Heygate Estate” resides.
