Artefact is a London based architecture studio, founded by Benedetta Rogers and Daniel Marmot. We are interested in buildings as cultural objects, that reflect the culture of their users. From homes to installations to community buildings, each project develops a distinctive identity in response to the background of our clients, the atmosphere of the site and leaps of the imagination. Our work is focussed on the craft of architecture, with a commitment to detail, grounded in the reality of how things are constructed. We are interested in material cultures, using everyday materials in unexpected ways and exploring new materials that reduce the environmental impact of what we build.
