Founded in 2009, Haptic Architects is an award-winning, design led practice, based in London and Oslo. We are an ambitious and international team of 20 people who are passionate about architecture and design.
Our name, Haptic, which refers to the sense of touch, is a guiding force for all our work; we strive to determine the haptical qualities for each project and how they will benefit the users of our masterplans, products and buildings.
We work across multiple sectors, at every scale, to design haptical spaces that can be enjoyed by everyone. Our designs are rigorous in their pragmatism, elegantly composed, and above all, have a focus on quality and craftsmanship. We strive to create vibrant, rigorous and sustainable designs that touch the ground lightly and have a positive impact on people's lives.
Collaboration is integral to our way of working. Within our studio we foster an environment which encourages our team to share, explore and develop ideas together. We regularly collaborate with both larger and smaller practices and we enjoy the dynamism that this brings.
Our work has been recognised by a number of awards, including the WAF Infrastructure Future Projects Award 2016; Restaurant & Bar Design Awards 2016; and BD Interior Architect of the Year Award 2016.
We are delighted to be entering the WAN Rising Star Award as we prepare to celebrate our ten year anniversary next year. We hope this presentation gives you a taste of who we are and how we practice as a collective.
