Hart Baskerville Architects – Profile

Our team consists of experienced architects and designers who develop the projects starting with a sketch and following it up to complete implementation of intended ideas.

James Baskerville

James Baskerville


James started his architectural career with the design and ‘hands on’ building of exquisitely detailed Buddhist temples. He then worked for a number of years in high profile architectural practices in London. During this time James was involved in the design of several award-winning, educational and civic buildings, most notably the Lichfield Garrick Theatre, Coventry University Library, and UCL’s School of Slavonic Studies.

James went on to set up his own interdisciplinary practice and over the past nine years ago has developed a portfolio of high-quality projects on a range of scales.

Alongside architectural practice, James has been a teacher of meditation and mindfulness for over fifteen years
