Carmody Groarke is a London-based architectural studio established by Kevin Carmody and Andrew Groarke in 2006. A strong emphasis is given to a critical design process within the studio, we resist predetermining architectural solutions to a client's brief prior to a thorough investigation of each project's unique situation.
Our process creates buildings and spaces that maintain a close synthesis between the context of the project and the client's requirements. As a result of this process-led work and our abilities to undertake projects of highly varied typologies, the studio is pursuing a diverse range of projects in the UK and abroad for private, commercial and public sector clients.
In 2007 Carmody Groarke were recipients of the Building Design Young Architect of the Year Award (YAYA). and in 2010 their Studio East Dining project was winner of the globally prestigious Emerging Architecture Award by The Architectural Review.
