Skene Catling de la Peña

Practice Network

Skene Catling de la Peña architects is an award-winning practice based in London. Formed by Charlotte Skene Catling and Jaime de la Peña in 2003, they have completed projects around the world, with sites in London, New York, Berlin, Moscow and Beijing. In 2015, Flint House was awarded the RIBA House of the Year and RIBA South Building of the Year Award.

Skene Catling de la Peña’s work addresses a wide variety of typologies for private, commercial and public sector clients. There is a strong emphasis on research throughout the development of their projects which leads to the rigorous exploration of ideas and possibilities at all scales from concept to detail. Early stage research leads to innovative solutions that have an inherent integrity and beauty, but that can also produce economies. Other disciplines are cross referenced as a means of questioning design solutions and they run explorative projects in areas such as film and music in parallel with their practice.

Skene Catling de la Peña was included among Wallpaper* Magazine’s Top 50 Young Architects in the World, and The Daily Telegraph’s list of ‘Britain’s Top Notch Architects’. The practice has been extensively published internationally.
