At Surman Weston, every building we make is carefully designed to respond to the users and location. We create buildings that are flexible to the changing needs of the people that use them and the places they inhabit.

We eschew a house style, instead spending the early stages of a project analysing and interrogating the brief and context. With these, we develop designs that are highly contextually sensitive, with careful consideration of materiality, construction technique, use and function.

Our RIBA Chartered practice was established in 2014 and is led by Tom Surman and Percy Weston. We are regular tutors for the undergraduate course at the University of Cambridge and have taught and lectured at institutions including the Royal College of Art and the University of Westminster.

We have won multiple architectural awards and were included in New Architects 3, a book showcasing the best emerging architectural practices in the UK.
