Meet Simon Kaufman

With over twenty years’ experience as a residential architect in London, Simon Kaufman has worked with and learned from some of the best names in residential building design, including Sir Terry Farrell & Partners, AECOM and PRP.

With experience in-house for developer clients, and many examples of completed projects, Simon has a deep understanding of construction needs on site, end-marketing, and what is needed to ensure well-built, low-maintenance and long-lasting buildings.

Meet Simon



I worked closely with Simon over a two-year period, on a retail-led, mixed-use scheme. As an architect, he was able to successfully accommodate demanding changes in brief, whilst still presenting creative and innovative solutions, within program. On a personal level, he always came with a ‘can do attitude,’ which was refreshing.
