About Practice


EDWARD WILLIAMS ARCHITECTS is a contemporary architectural practice: we design modern, beautiful, sustainable and inspirational spaces for people.

We work with private clients, end users and developers to design and deliver buildings and spaces that support their vision and enhance the environment. We have significant architectural experience across building types (from private houses to complex healthcare projects) and have worked both nationally and internationally.

The studio was established in 2011 by Edward Williams after a 20 year career at Hopkins Architects, where he was a partner.

Edward Williams is also the Royal Institute of Architects (RIBA) Honorary Librarian, and a Trustee, Board Member and Member of Council. He has also lectured on architecture both nationally and internationally.

We are also a registered RIBA Chartered Practice, more information about this can be found on

OUR STUDIO is in Notting Hill Gate, London, 5 minutes from the underground station, it is a bright open studio space and we welcome visitors, please do call if you would like to see where and how we work and to meet the team.


We have collectively spent over 50 years working for world-class architectural practices and are now able to bring this experience to bear for the benefit of our clients.

We have worked all over the world in the UK, USA, Spain, Germany, U.A.E., Mongolia, Singapore, and for major clients such as The Wellcome Trust (London), Princeton University (USA), University College London Hospitals, Forum for the Future, New College of the Humanities (all in London) and multiple private clients worldwide.

We offer a full architectural service: we design and project manage contemporary architectural projects, and associated design teams, to deliver them on time and on budget.


We work with our clients both to understand their aspirations and to develop their brief for each project. We have a wealth of experience in managing and delivering projects of the highest quality for exceptional clients across many sectors, collaborating closely with design and construction teams.

We research best practice, benchmarks and trends to inform discussions with the project and client team. We are asked to lecture widely on both design and technical issues.

We work with physical and digital models, hand sketches, physical samples and mock-ups to develop, describe and test the design.
