Clementine Blakemore Architects

Clementine Blakemore Architects is an emerging London-based practice, established by Clementine Blakemore, in 2016. In 2021 were featured in the Architecture Foundation book New Architects 4. In 2019 they completed a new music pavilion for a state primary school in Buckinghamshire, which was shortlisted for the Wood Awards, AJ Small Projects Awards and the RIBA MacEwan Awards. Previous clients include the Design Museum, the Dorset Wildlife Trust, and the UK Green Building Council; current projects include a music recording studio on an infill site in London Fields, the renovation of a listed house in Kentish Town for a potter, and an extension to Clem’s own house in Hackney.

Clementine Blakemore (Director) initially studied sculpture at the Ruskin School of Art Oxford University, under Richard Wentworth, and then worked in film before training as an architect. After a year at the Rural Studio in Alabama, she gained her qualifications at the Architectural Association (RIBA Parts 1 & 3) and the Royal College of Art (RIBA Part 2), graduating with Distinction. With a strong belief in collaboration and the process of learning through making, she has led a number of design/build workshops and was a Visiting School Director for the Architectural Association between 2012 – 2017. Prior to starting her own practice, Clem worked for Duggan Morris Architects, and David Chipperfield Architects and was a co-founder of the collective WORKSHOP architecture.
