IF_DO, Architects for the project

IF_DO is a multi award-winning RIBA chartered architecture practice based in Bermondsey, London. Established in 2014 by Al Scott, Sarah Castle and Thomas Bryans, IF_DO is dedicated to creating projects with a positive impact on users, the environment and the surrounding community.

We adopt a collaborative and explorative approach that draws on our collective experiences and interests. Our work is developed following careful analysis of context, informing architecture that is sensitive and appropriate to its place. For every scale of project, IF_DO always seek to deliver broader social and environmental benefits through our design— working with our clients to make their projects do more. IF_DO has a track record of delivering award winning projects that bring measurable benefits to the communities that they are situated within. IF_DO has been recognised for its innovative and creative approach. It was named by Wallpaper* Magazine as one of the world’s top 20 emerging practices in their Architects’ Directory 2017, and was a finalist for the 2017 Architectural Review international Emerging Architecture Awards. The practice was named Breakthrough Talent of the Year at the 2018 FX Design Awards, and Young Architect of the Year by the American Institute of Architects UK in the same year. Our Dulwich Pavilion was awarded a 2018 Civic Trust Award, which recognises projects that offer a positive cultural, social, economic or environmental benefit to their local communities.
