Cassion Castle Architects is an award-winning architecture practice, based in London. Founded in 2006 and led by Cassion Castle, we are dedicated to the creation of well-crafted, quality designs for both residential and commercial clients. Our understated buildings and spaces can be found in a range of locations, from small urban plots to rural green-field sites.
We believe that design solutions flow naturally and most successfully when the specific context of each project is examined carefully and then considered alongside the client's particular requirements. Emphasis is always placed on thoughtful design and craftsmanship. We aim to use natural, textural materials - wood, stone, metal, concrete - transcending trends, in order to create timeless and elegant design. We believe that good design can radically enhance the ability of our clients to carry out their everyday activities.
Current residential projects include: Chalk House - a Paragraph 55, zero-carbon house in the Kent downs, made from compressed chalk quarried from its own site; Bar Lane - a trio of new-build houses in the Cambridge countryside; Chandos Court - a penthouse development on the top floor of a 60's block in North London; and Albert House – the re-development of a small, urban outbuilding, into a compact three-storey dwelling. Recently completed commercial work includes the design of a Giacometti exhibition for Luxembourg & Dayan Gallery, and the creation of two new centres for Triyoga, London’s leading yoga company.
The practice has received prestigious RIBA and Manser Medal award nominations for our work. In 2016 Oak Lane House won The Daily Telegraph award for Best Residential Design, the same year Cassion Castle was a finalist in the BD Architect of the Year Awards.
Our work has been exhibited at the RIBA and published extensively in books, magazines, and the national press, including features in The Daily Telegraph and The Sunday Times. We are proud to be included in the Architecture Foundation's recent publication: "New Architects 3 - A Decade of British Talent".
