ben pentreath

Ben Pentreath’s architectural and interior design studio has established a powerful reputation across a variety of disciplines. From master-planning and urban development, to private houses and playful interiors, our small and close-knit team works to create the best – whatever the scale, size, scope and budget of a project. Above all, we love designing places that work beautifully for the long term, and feel right for place.

Ben’s background is in Art History, which he studied at the University of Edinburgh before attending the Prince of Wales’s Institute of Architecture. He worked for five years in New York and then with the Prince’s Foundation, before starting his own practice in 2004. Since then, the firm has grown slowly and carefully to occupy two beautiful studios in Bloomsbury’s renowned Lambs Conduit Street. Between 2019 and 2022 we expanded into our new offices at Lamp Office Court.

Ben Pentreath’s book English Decoration, published in 2011, established his growing reputation as an author and he is a regular contributor to the Financial Times and other journals. A sequel interiors book, English Houses, was published in 2016. His new book, An English Vision, a monograph of the work of the practice, will be published by Rizzoli New York in 2024.
