Spear’s Review

David Kohn Architects was founded in 2007 by Cambridge graduate David Kohn. Based in Camden, his projects often follow competitive tenders. 

At New College, Oxford, the firm designed student accommodation and facilities for the adjacent New College School, a project worth £32 million. A refurbishment of the Institute of Contemporary Arts, meanwhile, entailed bringing the podium of Carlton House Terrace into the 21st century. And the new Photography Centre at the Victoria & Albert Museum was the practice’s largest museum project to date.

Awards include Young Architect of the Year in 2009, One-Off House Architect of the Year 2010, RIBA and D&AD Designs of the Year, Condé Nast and New London awards in 2012, along with World Interior of the Year in 2013. More recently, its Red House in Dorset was named RIBA House of the Year 2022.
