In their latest meeting, Pengelly Society welcomed Andy Puncher, director of pH+, an architectural practice based in London. Andy founded pH+ with fellow architect Drew Hamilton in 2005. He now oversees a broad portfolio of work that has included the development of community and educational spaces as well as housing. Andy is passionate about getting the design/commercial mix right in any development.
Andy inspired us through a talk about his own journey to become an architect, a profession he loves, and he spoke with passion about many of the projects that he has been involved with, including The Milkshake Tree project. This involved the practice of creating an experiential garden den for the London Festival of Architecture in 2016; an inclusive sensory space inspired by the practice’s work for the London Centre for Children with Cerebral Palsy in Haringey.
