Architect Níall McLaughlin holds professorships at UCL, Yale and UCLA, and counts Young British Architect of the Year 1998 among his list of awards. The firm doesn’t specialise in particular styles, but in ‘high-quality architecture’.
It works on town masterplans, schools and private houses, while favouring ‘the inventive use of building materials’ to bring out ‘the qualities of light and the relationship between the building and its surroundings’. Such principles are more important than working in any particular style, he says. ‘We hope each project will be an original interpretation of the client, site, brief and budget.’ He has many esteemed clients, including Oxford University.
