NAME architecture is an international architectural practice founded by award-winning architect Nathalie Rozencwajg.

A global practice with strong local connections, NAME architecture has distinctive expertise in culturally significant projects and crafting beautiful solutions that maximise the architectural potential of buildings. Led by Nathalie Rozencwajg – whose AA credentials and RIBA and RICS award-winning work has gained global acclaim – NAME architecture creates one-of-a-kind solutions for every project. Based in London and Paris, NAME architecture is part of the world-leading community of architectural practice.

The people behind NAME architecture are credited with a diversity of highly-acclaimed and iconic architectural solutions. These include the Arctic Resort in Lapland, shopping malls including CentralFestival EastVille in Bangkok, restaurants including Porte 12, Viajante and Londrino, and educational centres including the Disaster Prevention and Education Centre in Istanbul. With expertise in reconceptualising listed buildings, we’ve also achieved acclaim for east London’s Town Hall Hotel and a hotel design for the old Town Hall in Fulham. Residentially, we have designed the high-end VI Castle Lane apartments in London’s Westminster conservation area and emblematic rooftop apartments in an historical Shoreditch building. We’re currently working on a large mixed-use hotel, residence and office project at a major transport hub on the outskirts of Paris.

Our team is also regularly invited to participate in prestigious architectural competitions, including for London’s esteemed Hurlingham Club, the Dorchester County Museum and the Kaunas Concert Centre in Lithuania.

Collaboration

We believe in leveraging the innovation potential of collaboration through combined expertise and ideas. For each project, we form bespoke collaborations with a trusted network of experts to enrich our work.
