Clementine Blakemore Architecture

CBA is a small London-based practice with an interest in the relationship between design, making and place. We are committed to producing buildings which are inventive, inclusive and have a positive impact on their users, as well as the wider community. Having recently completed a new Music Room for a state primary school in Buckinghamshire, we are currently working on the conversion of a derelict farm in Dorset into accessible holiday accommodation, alongside a community space and small educational farm. Previous clients include the Design Museum, the Dorset Wildlife Trust, and the UK Green Building Council. Please scroll down for the latest news.

Clementine Blakemore, ARB | Director 


Prior to starting her own practice, Clem worked for Duggan Morris Architects, David Chipperfield Architects and was a co-founder of the collective WORKSHOP architecture. She initially studied sculpture at the Ruskin School of Art, Oxford University, and then worked in film before training as an architect. After a year at the Rural Studio in Alabama, she gained her qualifications at the Architectural Association and the Royal College of Art. With a strong belief in collaboration and the process of learning through making, she has led a number of design/build workshops and was a Visiting School Director for the Architectural Association between 2012 – 2017.

Louis Mayes | Architectural Designer


Having previously studied architectural history, Louis completed his studies at The Cass School of Architecture. Hands-on construction has been key to his training; he designed and collaboratively built a rammed earth house in Ghana and a community workspace in Tottenham. Outside of his work with CBA, Louis writes for Blueprint Magazine and was part of a design team recently shortlisted for a competition proposing the reuse of a church in Brighton.
