About Jo Cowen Architects Approach

AWARD WINNING RESTORATION OF ‘BAKERY PLACE’ LONDON

Driven by people, designed for life.

Jo Cowen Architects is an award-winning architecture practice driven by people. The people who use and live in our buildings, the people who pass by our buildings and the people who commission our buildings.

The success of our practice is built on our brilliant team of architects, masterplanners, placemakers, urban regeneration specialists, interior designers and sustainability specialists. We consider design, construction and ‘in use’ factors as part of a holistic approach to sustainability and embed these requirements into the specification from the start.

In order to design successful Build-to-Rent schemes, the focus needs to be on delivering homes that people want to live in, places they want to meet in and a building that stimulates identity for its residents. Any scheme needs to deliver operationally, aesthetically and culturally.

‘We are passionate about designing homes and creating exceptional places that are rooted in cohesive placemaking. We balance the commercial requirements of our clients with our belief in the highest quality regeneration, that is sustainable and beautiful.’ Jo Cowen

‘Successful masterplanning is rooted in placemaking, community and understanding daily journeys, interactions and opportunities for connection. When you’re building a community, everything matters, especially the natural.’ Chris Wilkinson

Designing for the Living sector is as much about beautiful architecture and residents as it is about longevity and durability. Long term viable schemes are those whose materials and layouts perform sustainably and robustly throughout the building’s life-cycle. Operational stategy is key, as is the ethos and the culture.
