Pepyn Nolet established his practice in 2017 after working in London at Stephen Taylor Architects and Witherford Watson Mann Architects, and before that in Amsterdam. The practice is interested in the social aspects of building, determining which ideas have informed building typologies and techniques, and considering how the act of building gives expression to cultural ideas. While the studio is interested in understanding traditional craftsmanship, it also believes in the merits of modern standardised ways of building and sees the beauty in a ‘mundane,’ rational approach. In Haarlem in the Netherlands, studioNOLET collaborated with five architects on a new build terrace of townhouses, creating internal spaces with nooks and crannies as an antidote to anonymous mass housing. In northern Spain, it has designed Patio House, a scheme arranged around a double-height patio space and overlooking a steep, forested valley.

For over 20 years, the Architecture Foundation has brought together professionals from across the built environment to discuss and act on issues related to design and the built environment. With a renewed focus on the city and the critical intersection of architecture and politics, the Architecture Foundation works to effect meaningful change on policy and practice.
