Industry and Practice

Working with the University of Reading

30 June 2017

We’ve been working in close collaboration with The University of Reading’s School of Architecture since it opened in 2016, assisting in the delivery of the Industry and Practice Module. Our focus has been to expose students to the architecture industry and bridge the gap between theory and practice to help prepare them for their professional careers. 

As part of the module, we’ve designed and delivered a series of teaching sessions. These have included workshops, feasibility site visits, construction site visits, practice tours and interviews with different members of the studio. 

The end of year show was a fantastic showcase of how much has been achieved in just one year!

New London Studio!

19 June 2017

We’re excited to announce the expansion of Ayre Chamberlain Gaunt and the opening of our new London studio! You can now find us at 277-281 Oxford Street, just a stone’s throw from Oxford Circus tube station.

Over the last few years we’ve grown considerably and our achievements have been recognised by the industry. Being named BD Young Architect of the Year was a significant milestone which reflected our successes to date and was a great way to mark the move.

Our portfolio includes a number of award-winning schemes in and around London, and the opening of our new studio will allow us to build on this and strengthen our relationships within the city.

Matthew Chamberlain and Emily Pallot will be heading up the London studio but our ‘one practice’ culture will ensure collaboration and movement between Hampshire and London.

As well as opening our new office we’ve also welcomed lots of talented people to the team. Check out the new faces here.

RIBA South Award Winner

The Point and Emerging Practice

26 May 2017

Last night The Point Youth Centre in Tadley was awarded an RIBA South Award and we were named RIBA South Emerging Practice of the Year.

The RIBA has been celebrating outstanding work for over 180 years and the RIBA Regional Awards recognise UK buildings of architectural importance.

RIBA Regional Award winners will also be considered for the highly sought-after RIBA National Awards and the shortlist for the RIBA Stirling Prize for the best building of the year will be chosen from the national award-winning buildings later in the year.

We are delighted to have received such a prestigious award for a project that means so much to us and the Tadley community. To be named ‘RIBA South Emerging Practice of the Year’ is a real honour and marks another significant milestone for the practice.
