We are excited to begin a feasibility study for Applecart Arts, a creative hub that celebrates the community of Newham. Studio Gil has been commissioned to develop designs for the organisation’s new site at Passmore Edwards Library, to house a community theatre, workshop spaces, artists studios, an exhibition space and a café.


‘In Practice’ is a series of portraits of British architects at work in their studios by Timothy Soar for Architecture Today. As part of the series, Pedro was photographed at the studio in Ilford.

Founding director, Pedro Gil, was appointed as one of 15 panel members for the Mayor of London’s Diversity in the Public Realm Commission, to work to improve diversity in the capital’s public realm, including statues, street names, memorials and building names. He is the only representative for the built environment on the Commission, which also includes Riz Ahmed and Robert Bevan.

As part of their 30 Objects in 30 Days series, the London Festival of Architecture asked Pedro Gil to nominate an object that represents the theme of ‘care’. Pedro nominated the studio’s toy collection.

Studio Gil are named in the AJ100’s 2020 Disruptors list, which celebrates practices and networks who are challenging the norms of traditional practice.

We are pleased to announce that Southwark Council has appointed Studio Gil and ArchitectureDoingPlace to build a new community space and social housing on the Old Peckham Library site.

Studio Gil, in collaboration with ArchitectureDoingPlace, have been named as one of the five finalists in an ideas contest led by Enfield Council, for an intergenerational housing scheme at Meridian Water.
