Gianni Botsford. Gianni Botsford Architects

Gianni Botsford Architects is an architecture firm based in London, UK, working at varying scales both in the UK and internationally, with projects undertaken in China, Taiwan, Costa Rica, The Bahamas, Italy, Switzerland and the UK.

Gianni Botsford studied in Professor John Frazer’s Evolutionary Architecture Unit at the Architectural Association in London, UK from 1994-1996, and set up his practice in London the same year.

Furthering interest in the analogue, digital, and natural systems, the practice explores the ‘Local Adaptation’ architecture to climate, culture and context. Projects are developed that converge on criteria that emerge through a forensic analysis of the site and brief, with many projects focusing on sunlight or other natural systems as a generator of form and organization.

The studio is small and agile, actively engaging in research and attempting to apply the discoveries and thinking that emerge from this research to its designs at all scales, from master planning to product design. Working with an extensive range of consultants,  teaching and collaboration with architects, craftsmen and artists all enrich the studio outlook.

With a reputation for creating highly crafted, carefully calibrated and beautiful buildings that respond to their unique contexts and environments, they have won many awards including the Lubetkin Prize.
