Kieran joined Bennetts Associates in 2011 to work on 40 Chancery Lane, a new high-quality office building for developer Derwent London, on a constrained site in the City of London. His main responsibilities revolved around the design of an enclosed external courtyard and bridged atrium, addressing how the new development sensitively engaged with a number of retained buildings, whilst also creating bright and characterful social spaces.
Since then Kieran has worked on a variety of projects including a new sports hall in King’s Cross and the extension of Bennetts Associates’ London Studio which won the New London Architecture office interior award. More recently he has worked on another high-spec office building at One Bedford Avenue for developer Exemplar, on a prominent corner site at the South end of London’s Tottenham Court Road. His main role was the design and delivery of the building interiors. Focusing primarily on the reception, washrooms and staircases, he successfully developed a language and character of the spaces and materials that reflected the site’s electronics heritage and identity. Kieran is a keen collaborative worker, with particular skills and experience of the coordination process, as well as detailed design development with subcontractors.
