Benjamin Machin is an architect designing contemporary buildings, interiors and public spaces. The studio is an RIBA Chartered Practice and is small by design, with Benjamin leading the design and management of each project. The practice is a signatory of both Architects Declare and the RIBA 2030 Climate Challenge and specialises in sustainable retrofit and new-build projects.


I studied architecture in Liverpool and London and worked within critically acclaimed practices for over ten years. In 2021, I established my design studio in London to make thoughtful work with a sensibility for what already exists. Alongside directing the studio, I am actively engaged as a visiting critic at various schools of architecture across the United Kingdom and have led a teaching studio at Loughborough University since 2021.

I make architecture that is spatially rich, yet necessary with a design approach that is respectful of history and place, yet contemporary in nature. Incorporating responsive collaboration with clients, consultants and constructors, each project initiates a new process of looking, learning and interpreting. Formed of concerns for wellbeing, ecology and locality, my work strives to enhance the experience of its users and the wider community.
