We set up CarverHaggard in London at the end of 2010, to work on building and research projects. We combine a pragmatic response to the brief with an artful and sensitive attitude to physical, cultural and historical context.
Directors Josh Carver and William Haggard studied architecture together and have held senior roles at leading London practices Adjaye Associates and DSDHA, working as project architects on a range of high profile award-winning buildings over the previous ten years.
We are working at a range of scales in the UK and abroad. We have designed and built houses, theatres, schools, offices, galleries, nurseries, shops, universities, film and theatre sets, libraries, community centres, apartment blocks, restaurants, and exhibitions.
We are a RIBA Chartered Practice.
