Tower of London, Tower Hill

Our commitment to design quality and spaces that work is matched by our design integrity, culture and attention to detail.
Our architecture is about how people experience place and how place affects them. Our work reconnects people with their environment through the careful manipulation of the sensual qualities of light, material and space. We create spaces that support and encourage the expression of contemporary life.
Stanton Williams was founded by Alan Stanton and Paul Williams in 1985 following extensive individual careers in teaching and practice in the UK, Europe and the US. They have been working with fellow directors Gavin Henderson and Patrick Richard for over 18 years in a studio, which now has an established team of 80 people with four directors, two associate directors and eight associates.
The practice’s shared passion for art and architecture continues to guide our design ethos.
We have successfully completed numerous high profile architectural, urban design, masterplanning, exhibition and interior design projects, winning more than 50 awards. The scope of our work to date includes culture, education, research, commerce, sports and leisure, residential, public realm and retail projects for both public and private clients. Each project challenges us to constantly renew our creativity that, together with our breadth of experience, allows us to meet and exceed our client’s expectations.
