“One of the most award-festooned small practices in the UK” – Blueprint Magazine

Knox Bhavan is a multi-award winning RIBA chartered architectural practice established in 1995. We are known for simplicity of form, sensitivity to the environment, construction expertise, innovative use of materials, and the highest quality of detail and workmanship.

From initial drawings to the finished piece, we are set apart from many other architecture firms for our hands-on engagement, born out by the quality of the final product. Innovation and a progressive approach are high on our agenda. Past winners of numerous design and craftsmanship awards, our craft orientated approach embraces both natural locally sourced, and man made cutting edge materials.

We nurture a close personal working relationship with every client, each project receiving the expert attention of senior partners from beginning to end. Successful collaboration between respected fellow consultants, known contractors and ambitious clients consistently produces good value, great work.

Every project is a new opportunity for us. We pay close attention to individual requirements of client, brief and context. We aim to combine space, place, proportion, light and colour to create somewhere special.

We are one of the top RIBA National Award winning practices over the past 10 years (Architects’ Journal, 2015).  We have won and been three-times finalist of the celebrated RIBA Manser Medal (House of the Year), twice winner of the Grand Designs Award and winner of numerous RIBA, Civic Trust, and other industry awards.

Sasha and Simon both champion good design, they lecture, teach, sit on Competition and Award panels all of which feeds into the expertise and work of the practice continually informing and challenging us.
