Borgos Pieper is an architecture and design studio directed by Etienne Borgos and Nadine Pieper with offices and associates in London and Barcelona. Our work pursues design excellence at every scale of the built environment; from urban to product design our philosophy incorporates sensitivity to context through a considered approach and careful detailing.
The pursuit of quality increasingly embraces the performance of buildings, how they adapt to change and how they may be regenerated with the desire to achieve responsible and timeless projects. The studio is currently developing work in the United Kingdom, Europe, Middle East and the Americas.
We integrate the design of our projects from the inside to the outside. We have a responsibility to design for people; the end users of the buildings we create. As such, we start with the functional needs and purpose of the project and therefore see no separation from the inside to the outside expression of the building.
We take this level of detailed investigation and analysis to our approach to specialist design, as well as the integration of landscape, taking an active lead in the design direction adopted, whilst working closely with the finest specialist consultants in their respective fields, for local knowledge and expertise.
The Barcelona studio is fully integrated with the London team. It develops projects both in Spain and overseas. Located between Paseo de Gracia and Rambla Cataluña and designed by Borgos Pieper, it offers studio, meeting, exhibition, and conference spaces for the practice.
The London studio manages the practice’s design and administration functions and is supported by a team of specialists in IT, accounting, model making and visualization.
