31/44 Architects is a London-based architectural practice headed by Will Burges and Stephen Davies. Based in London, near Brick Lane, the practice currently comprises a team of nine architects and architectural assistants. Projects range in scale from strategic masterplanning through to smaller-scale residential work. Current projects include a large new home within an existing agricultural barn in Norfolk, a number of one-off new-build houses and a mixed-use arts scheme within the previous Whitechapel Bell Foundry site, plus new-build hotel on an adjacent site. The practice has recently caught the attention of the architectural press, garnering nominations and awards for Redchurch Townhouse, No. 49 and Red House. Projects are characterised by a thoughtful response to context, conceived not in isolation, but growing instead out of the particular conditions of each setting. This results in buildings with an inherent connection to their site whilst ensuring they are also a close reflection of clients’ requirements. 31/44 have taught an undergraduate studio at Kingston School of Art and Architecture since 2010 and are regular professional practice examiners at a number of architecture schools. Teaching has become a fundamental part of the practice; the constant articulation of ideas, observations and proposals required in the teaching studio also enriches the design studio. It is an essential discipline that continues to help define 31/44.
