Carl Turner Architects

Location LONDON



Carl Turner Architects is an award-winning, architectural studio, that believes in creating thought-provoking and well-crafted architectural projects. As a studio we are creative, responsive and not afraid to take a risk when it feels right. As a consequence we have found ourselves playing the role of not only architect but also developer, curator and maker.

With a passionate belief that architecture can enrich lives and make a difference to those that use and engage with it, we always start by examining the context in which we are working and respond with design solutions that we feel are appropriate and right to the situation we are presented with.

Founded in 2006 by Carl Turner, the practice has established a reputation for delivering high impact projects often producing innovative design solutions despite limited resources. We work with a diverse range of clients including local authorities, arts and cultural organisations, not for profits and commercial developers.

Our projects range in size from a shipping container project at Hackney City Farm to a 10,000 sqm arts academy in Peckham. Our expertise lies in the fields of housing, culture, workplace design and urban planning and we pride ourselves on being able to engage with and involve a wide variety of communities and stakeholders in the process of design.

The practice has worked overseas with the British Council in Lisbon and more recently with RIBA and Moleskin in Shanghai. We have also tackled very large existing buildings such as Great Barn Farm, the longest listed UK tithe barn.

The studio has been widely recognised for its work, winning the Royal Institute of British Architect’s Manser Medal for Slip House in 2013, awarded each year to the best new house designed by an architect in the UK. We were announced as one of the best offices producing small projects at the Architect of the Year Awards in 2012, AYA house winners in 2013 and are RIBA London Regional and National Award winners for our projects in Brixton.

Pop Brixton

Pop Brixton, located in South London is a new ‘mini city’ of culture, enterprise and community. Created on what was previously a brownfield site of around 2,000 sqm, Pop Brixton has transformed this once derelict space into a hive of activity, bringing much needed affordable work and leisure space to the area.

Peckham Levels

Peckham Levels offers much needed creative workspace, designed to inspire and support a new community of artists, makers and entrepreneurs, as well as providing benefits to the wider community. All tenants are creatives and independent businesses, mostly drawn from the local area, and selected on their commitment to contributing positively to the community through participation in a structured programme of outreach projects.

Frame House

This new build four-storey home is located upon a restricted site in the busy area of Borough, South-East London. The ever-changing urban context provides a haphazard backdrop of industrial infra-structure, commercial and residential buildings and the scenography of an existing railway.

Opal House

This project investigates and re-establishes the typology of a semi-detached house as a contemporary dwelling. The original Victorian cellular rooms have been replaced by open-plan levels. The play upon space marks different activities; the double-height lower ground floor functions as the main entertaining room with access to the rear garden.

Slat House

The Slat House represents an unusual two – storey extension, and sophisticated remodelling of a 1930’s semi-detached house, to provide an extra bedroom, bathroom and study/ garage.

Slip House

Occupying one of four plots (a gap in a Brixton terrace), Slip House is CTA in-house development built in the bottom of the garden of a derelict house. Three simple ‘slipped’ orthogonal box forms break up the bulk of the building and give it it’s striking sculptural quality. The top floor is clad in milky, translucent glass planks which continue past the roof to create a high level enclosure for a private roof terrace. Designed to Code for Sustainable Homes Level 5.

Stealth Barn

Sitting in the exposed expanse of the Cambridgeshire fens, the Stealth Barn is a bold, simple form, reminiscent of the barn it accompanies. Built as a guest house, studio or meeting place, depending on time of year and workloads: the Stealth Barn is also a retreat, a place of inspiration and enjoyment.
