About Ben Pentreath
Ben Pentreath’s architectural and interior design studio has established a powerful reputation across a variety of disciplines from master-planning and urban development, to private houses and playful interiors.
Ben’s background is in Art History, which he studied at the University of Edinburgh before attending the Prince of Wales’s Institute of Architecture.
He worked for five years in New York and then with the Prince’s Foundation, before starting his own practice in 2004.
In 2008, Ben opened a tiny eponymous design store in Bloomsbury which has become one of the most influential small shops in London.
Ben's aesthetic is inspired by tradition and a respect for carefully detailed, authentic materials and design, but combined with a love of contemporary culture, which means that life is never dull.
He writes regularly for the Financial Times, and his weekly blog, Inspiration, is followed by many thousands of readers in the UK, America and around the world.
His book, English Decoration was published in 2011 and his sequel interiors book, English Houses launches in September 2016.
