Established in 1995, Henley Halebrown, led by Simon Henley and Gavin Hale-Brown has evolved from a practice working on a range of interiors, exhibitions and domestic commissions to completing award winning education, healthcare, residential, commercial and arts buildings, plus “adaptive reuse” projects.
Whilst working internationally, extensively across Europe and Russia on masterplanning, residential and arts projects for the past 15 years, the practice has also won eight RIBA awards; three in 2018 - Chadwick Hall, De Beauvoir Block and Kings Crescent (which also won the New London Awards Mayor’s Prize); and prior to this, Shepherdess Walk, Talkback TV, St.Benedict’s School, Junction Arts & Civic Centre and the Akerman Health Centre, which made the RIBA Stirling Prize midlist in 2013. In 2018 Chadwick Hall was shortlisted for the RIBA Stirling Prize and nominated for the Mies van der Rohe Award EU Prize for Contemporary Architecture in 2019.
Henley Halebrown combines practice, teaching, writing and research. Simon Henley has authored The Architecture of Parking (Thames & Hudson, 2007) and Redefining Brutalism (RIBA Publications, 2017). 2018 saw the publication of a monograph reflecting on their work by Swiss publishers Quart Verlag in their De Aedibus International series.
