Ben Pentreath’s background is in Art History, which he studied at the University of Edinburgh before attending the Prince of Wales’s Institute of Architecture.
He worked for five years in New York and then with the Prince’s Foundation, before starting his own architectural and interior design studio in 2004.
Ben is renowned for creating a distinctive and playful style – that draws inspiration in equal measure from the great English practitioners of the 1960s and 70s, and from historical interiors of every period, but all infused with a fresh modern sensibility.
Ben combines a strong use of colour, pattern and classical detail with bold contemporary fabric and furniture: ensuring that the room is just right – both for the client, and for the building.
As he says, “Above all, we love designing places that work beautifully for the long term.”
