George and James Architects


Get to know us. 


George and James Architects is a design-led architecture practice working across London, the South-East and South-West. We met whilst studying at the University of Portsmouth, before setting up our practice in 2010. Alongside our practice work we both enjoy teaching at the Portsmouth School of Architecture.  

We have completed projects across London and the home counties. Our work includes architecture, interior design and conservation. Between us we have over 18 years experience in the education, office, residential and retail sectors.

We are proud to be an RIBA Chartered Practice and as such we are committed to excellence in design and service delivery. The RIBA Plan of Work 2013 sets out the key stages of a project from conception to completion. Get in touch to discuss your new project.
