Alex Cochrane


After completing a foundation course in Fine Art, Alex Cochrane studied Interior Design at Chelsea College of Art and completed his studies in Architecture and Urbanism at the Architectural Association in London.


He gained invaluable experience working with a number of award winning architectural practices before starting his own practice in 2008. The practice has since enjoyed acclaim for a series of projects including The Boathouse, Selfridges Men’s Designer areas and Personal Shopping, The Silence Room and most recently a 5-storey house in Earl’s Court Square.


Alex is supported by a team of architects and designers with a deep knowledge of cultures both past and present.


Exploring architecture and design through studies of space, form, light and materials is core to the practice. Their approach is about invention rather than replication achieving solutions through creative dialogue, painting, drawing and model making. They are acutely aware of the building process with a rigorous attention to detail.


Recent projects demonstrate the studio’s ability to work on a range of building types. Their interests lie in all related architecture, design and furniture disciplines and will work with clients on the selection of materials, furniture and the acquisition of art and objects that truly make a project come to life.


The practice operates from a studio in West London.
