Platform 5 Architects
Platform 5 Architects is an award winning architectural practice led by Patrick Michell and Claire McKeown with a diverse portfolio of projects in the residential, commercial, education and cultural sectors. Since our inception in 2006, we have built a reputation on the quality of our design and level of service to our clients. We have been featured in the Architecture Foundation’s ‘New Architects 3’ book, a survey of the best emerging practices of the last 10 years and in 2009, Wallpaper* magazine selected us for their Architects Directory, showcasing 30 of the world’s most talented young architectural practices. Our completed projects have been published internationally covering our residential projects such as the award winning extension at Mapledene Road, Shoffice, Book Tower House and new build country house Meadowview. Backwater, a new build house built in a flood zone on the Norfolk Broads recently won an RIBA award.

Having proven our ability to design and deliver crafted bespoke houses, we have now completed larger scale public and masterplanning projects such as the £40million Waterloo Campus redevelopment for Lewisham Southwark College and currently have a commercial building and 63 unit housing scheme under construction on the Grade II listed Toynbee Hall site.

Whilst the scale at which we work has increased we remain committed to delivering the quality and detail that won us acclaim with our early projects.
