Build Architecture Awards

Build Architecture Awards 2015 61 IPT Architects is an innovative, London based archi- tects practise working across a number of market sec- tors to enhance the environment. This award-winning RIBA Chartered practice works at all scales from furniture design to multiple residential, commercial and public projects, and has a diverse portfolio of com- pleted work. Established in 2003 by Amira Idris-Town and Lee-Anthony Town, the practice has grown to encompass private, commercial and public sector clients who have provided them with wide experience of working on projects in diverse locations. These range from tight urban place to controversial rural sites. Addi- tionally, they are experienced in maximising development opportunities and in negotiating planning consents on sensitive sites. Each project is unique, and therefore IPTA endeavours to treat every project individually. The firm’s design style varies from project to project, and emerges from close studies of the individual site’s qualities and its context at the same time as creating modern and sustainable building embodying high quality design and craftsmanship. The company’s aim is always to deliver projects on budget and on time without com- promising on the quality of the design, which is achieved through ensuring a meticulous dialogue with their clients, stakeholders and collaborators. IPTA focus on creating architectural solutions that not only respond sensitively to the site and the environment, but also are innovative, practical and delight- ful. Ultimately, every building the firm creates is designed to make people’s life better. In order to do this, the firm works hard to retain their position at the top of their industry. IPTA’s open plan studio provides the infrastructure for creative and energetic thinking, which is imperative when working in such fast paced industry such as theirs. All of the firm’s projects are informed by a rigorous research into materials, construction techniques, sustainability and a sensitive approach to place. Additionally, having a workshop in-house allows the firm to test and experiment with diverse materials and modern method of construction by creating mock-ups of building fragments. This enables IPTA to maintain absolute control over the entire process and ensures that the integrity of their design and its execution are always met. Ultimately, IPT Architects were keen to state that they were honoured to have won this award and felt that it was a recognition of their hard work.
