Andy Puncher, Director at architectural practice pH+, will present at the forthcoming Brick Works event on Thursday 19th April in Clerkenwell, London. The evening event, hosted by Hawkins\Brown, will provide in-depth, contemporary case studies on some of the most notable clay brick architecture in the UK’s built environment.
Andy studied at Nottingham University and was short-listed for the RIBA Silver Medal. After working in Nottingham, he joined Hawkins\Brown in 1998 where he worked on a variety of projects, winning the AJ Small Building, and Design Week’s Retail Environment of the Year. He was made an Associate in 2004 where he teamed up with fellow pH+ director Drew Hamilton to lead a Design Studio within the practice. He was selected for the prestigious Architects’ Journal and Corus’s ‘40 under 40’ design award, before co-founding pH+ Architects in 2005.
As a member of the ARB and RIBA visiting board Andy played an active role in the validation of the UK’s Architecture Schools and maintains links with education as a visiting Tutor and Critic at the University of East London and UCA as well as currently running a unit at Canterbury University. Andy also regularly contributes to the architectural press.
Andy’s extensive experience, across a variety of sectors, sees him play a key strategic role on a wide range of projects within the office, in each case ensuring that good design ensures maximum value is added for clients. Andy’s passion and enthusiasm continues to be a driving factor in the practice’s growth.
Andy's focus at the Brick Works event will be on Pinnacle N10.
This mixed-use scheme in the heart of the Muswell Hill conservation area strikes a careful balance between luxury, affordability and craft. With a contemporary and modular reinterpretation of the surrounding housing stock, the project is composed of three buildings, which utilise a challenging, sloped and linear site to create a series of striking yet sensitively detailed facades. As a result each section has its own character whilst retaining a unified palette and design ethos. Pinnacle N10 provides a compelling case study in how unused urban edge or gap sites can be creatively explored for mixed-use projects.
