An experienced architect, supported by a community of experts and creatives bringing understanding and joy to educational, community-minded, and privately commissioned design.


A wealth of experience

Caroline Buckingham established her independent architectural firm, Caroline Buckingham Architects, in 2013, following a stellar career at a multinational architectural practice. Caroline has over twenty-five years experience working as an architect; she was a Director and the Head of Educational Design at HLM; was Non-Executive Director at Llewelyn Davies; and is the past Vice President of Practice and Profession at RIBA. Whilst at HLM, Caroline won numerous awards for her work. Caroline Buckingham Architects has completed many bespoke commissions in both the public and private sectors.


Sector focus

With her extensive experience in the public sector – particularly in education – Caroline is widely regarded as an expert in this field.

She continues to work as both architect and consultant on innumerable projects that are designed to enhance the lives of those working and learning in the public sector. Caroline also welcomes projects in the private sector, and has a long established history of helping clients realise their unique vision.

Cultivating an understanding

Listening is at the heart of Caroline’s approach toward design. Design, she believes, ought be led by the unique needs of the client, as well as being sympathetic towards a building’s surrounding.

She recognises that an effective design not only caters to particular needs; a building has the ability to positively shape the lives and culture of those that occupy them. It is this immersive, “hands-on” approach that has earned Caroline her reputation for being able to interpret briefs that both reflect as well as enrich her client’s vision.

Collaborative approach

For Caroline Buckingham Architects, best practice is born out of a combination of expertise and experience.

The firm delivers highly crafted, innovative solutions by drawing on a community of creatives, technicians, and other like-minded practices that Caroline has built relationships with over the years.
