Northlight Architects is a forward-thinking, fresh new practice but with a portfolio of work stretching back decades.

Until 2023 we were trading as Cooley Architects and developed a reputation for innovative solutions to difficult sites. We continue to focus on our clients’ aspirations by bringing creative, commercially viable design ideas to a wide range of situations.

We operate with an extensive network of industry professionals to build a team tailored to each individual project.



We use technology to help us work and control the quality of our output but we also know the value of working together face to face. Whilst we employ flexible working practices, we know the value of real space working. Our hub is a studio in a creative business centre in East London.

Our projects are always designed and drawn in 3D so we can best interrogate the emerging concept and explain it to our clients and design partners.

Design is at the forefront of what we do and we believe that every problem has a creative solution.
