Pauline Stockmans


A skilled architect and mentor to many across the practice, Pauline relishes the collaborative, team-based approach to design and solving a complex brief to deliver uplifting places and spaces.

From 2008-16, Pauline was a Partner of the practice. During that time, she led our winning competition team for Stratford Waterfront, a new neighbourhood at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park creating venues for Sadler’s Wells, UAL’s London College of Fashion, the V&A and BBC, now under construction. She guided the design of Rambert dance company’s new home on the South Bank, a project which won an RIBA National Award in 2014 and the transformation of St Thomas the Apostle College in Southwark, which involved a balance of new-build and work to existing buildings.

One of the architects responsible for the Southwark Street studios so frequently cited as an inspiration by new members of the practice, she still draws pleasure from the view of the exposed concrete soffits and planted terraces from her desk as she works. A keen gardener, Pauline oversees the design and maintenance of planting across the studio ensuring there is something to draw the eye whatever the season.

More recently, she has been involved in the design of three projects within the City of London: the mixed-use commercial development at 100 Bishopsgate and its adjacent office space at 15 St Helen’s Place, and the renewal of public realm at CityPoint. And she is working on a new community and council services building in Peckham.

She trained at the University of Newcastle and the University of Westminster.
