Peter Aldington

Peter Aldington established his own practice in 1962. He quickly gained an international reputation for his set of three village houses in Buckinghamshire, which he designed and built with his wife, Margaret Aldington, between 1964 and 1968. These properties are famed for their magical transition between house and garden. John Craig joined the practice as a partner in 1970. The practice designed groundbreaking doctors’ surgeries, shops and office interiors, and became one of the most influential designers of post-war domestic housing in Britain. Later, Paul Collinge joined as partner in 1983. They produced their own version of High Tech in the mid 1980s with the Royal Mail at Hemel Hempstead. The practice is still thriving, with Aldington and Craig working as consultants. Their work is inspired by architects such as Mies Van der Rohe and Le Corbusier. Aldington, Craig and Collinge have a won numerous awards and designed five listed buildings.
