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 and the wider community, 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 use everyday materials in unexpected ways and explore new materials that reduce the environmental impact of what we build.
Benedetta co-founded Artefact having previously delivered a number of self-inititated projects under the name Studio RO/ST. Working with cultural and community groups, she has delivered a pavilion for Hackney City Farm, an exhibition on Ridley Road and Airdraft, an inflatable temporary pavilion for the Architecture Foundation in collaboration with Thomas Randall-Page.
Benedetta studied at Bartlett School of Architecture and completed her studies at the London Metropolitan University. Prior to founding Artefact, she worked as an architect at Henley Halebrown, Featherstone Young Architects, Adams + Sutherland and Publica. She has delivered residential, cultural and urban regeneration projects such as the award winning Ty Pawb Arts and Culture centre and the refurbishment project of the Mill House. In 2016, she was awarded the RIBA Boyd Auger Travel scholarship for the research project ‘Echoes of Accra’.
Daniel co-founded Artefact to focus on buildings that reflect the culture of their users. Working collaboratively with clients and communities, his work marries the craft of architecture with a commitment to delivering projects that bring joy to their users while minimising carbon in construction and in use.
Daniel studied architecture at University of Cambridge and completed his studies at the Bartlett School of Architecture. Prior to founding Artefact, Daniel worked as an Associate at Henley Halebrown, leading educational projects, residential developments, masterplans and research studies for Local Authorities across London, including both phases of the much lauded Kings Crescent development. He has considerable experience in the UK and overseas, previously working at urban design practice Publica, Alison Brooks Architects and MVRDV in Rotterdam. Daniel has taught design studios at the University of Nottingham and Central St Martins. His writing and work have been widely published and exhibited, and he is currently a mentor on the FLUID Built By Us Programme.
