About us

    Giles Quarme Architects is a London-based architectural practice that specialises in all aspects of work relating to historic buildings: surveying and historical research; repair and alteration; and design of new buildings within Conservation Areas, and other historic settings. GQA was established in 1987 and since then has worked on a number of award-winning projects across the UK and internationally.

    Our approach to architecture in general and historic buildings in particular, is holistic, as we allow priorities and issues to interact rather than to dominate and dictate what can be done to a building to improve its future wellbeing.
