RIBA gold medal winner Sir David Chipperfield’s practice is now active across four continents, and more than half of the employees at the London office are EU nationals — which has been integral to the practice’s success. ‘The transfer of knowledge, of ideas — a cross-fertilisation of cultures and of thinking — is really important in the creative sector,’ avers the firm.Since establishing his practice in 1985, Chipperfield has designed buildings such as the Nobel Center in Stockholm and the Kunsthaus Zürich in Switzerland, and Valentino stores in Paris, London,Rome, New York and Japan.Although he is renowned for his public buildings, he also designs homes around the UK for private clients. His buildings are stark and striking, with a trademark serenity.
