STUDIO HURLEY + HUGHES
Architecture and Design
Hurley + Hughes Architects is a London-based architecture and design studio formed in 2016 by Rachel Hurley and Jack Hughes.
We work across a broad range of sectors and scales; furniture and lighting design, interventions in existing buildings, new build, public realm and masterplanning. We have considerable experience working with listed buildings, in Conservation Areas, Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and other sensitive contexts.
Our designs are driven by an understanding of context and place and developed with the client to respond to their individual aspirations and needs.
