Maich Swift architects

Maich Swift Architects was founded following a period of 5 years when Paul Maich and Ted Swift worked together at Caruso St John Architects on the design and construction of various projects including the 2016 Stirling Prize winning Newport Street Gallery. Over the last 10 years They have led numerous residential, retail and cultural projects. They have experience of working in sensitive contexts and on historic, listed and public buildings.

The practice is committed to the successful delivery of ambitious and characterful schemes and approach each project with care and rigour. Maich Swift works using different methods of enquiry and representation to communicate ideas, and actively follow these through to construction with a thorough understanding of materials and methods of building.

Together they aim to produce work of the highest quality and demonstrate the value of good, careful design on projects relating to architecture, interiors and furniture.
