About us

Neat is an architectural and interior design studio founded by Gordon Abbott

​We work across Europe on a range of projects, from large-scale offices, smaller innovative live/work spaces, regeneration and masterplanning through to private residential and seasonal home collaborations.  We are also proud of our cultural projects, in which we have collaborated closely with local artists.  

We are open and hardworking, forming long-standing client relationships grounded in good design practices, clarity and trust.

 

As the founder of Neat, Gordon leads the creative direction of the studio, bringing the benefit of his experience from 25 years of practice across a spectrum of building types, design disciplines and locations around the world. Our team is known for its skilled stakeholder management and ability to deliver projects on time and to budget, with a keen eye for detail.

We are inspired by design thinking from around the world. We relish finding opportunities in constraints, responding with intelligent and creative solutions.

 

Prior to forming Neat, Gordon was a design director at Pringle Richards Sharratt Architects, where he led teams that completed a huge variety of projects. These include Workspace’s flagship collaborative workspace at Metal Box Factory in London, the office interiors across all 24 floors of the Shard, and number of exclusive private residences in Belgravia, the Alps and Kent.

Gordon completed his architectural training at the Architectural Association in London, and prior to that studied at Bath University, the American University in Cairo and the Tolentino School Universita IUVA in Venice.  Before returning to London, Gordon worked in Brunei on a diverse range of projects including a private hospital and stables for 200 hundred polo horses.

Gordon is a Professional Studies Advisor at Cambridge University School of Architecture.

As an expanding practice we are always interested to hear from talented people looking to join our studio.
