Hudson Architects was initially known for contemporary one-off houses, which in many ways defined its early public persona. This book, the first comprehensive monograph of Hudson Architects, illustrates how, unafraid to challenge established ways of working, the practice has developed a diverse and complex portfolio across a range of sectors. A series of illustrated essays by key authors and commentators on contemporary architecture in the UK and beyond examines their work, from the practice's skill in beautiful detailing to its ability to create a modern response to vernacular and tradition. The book also showcases the practice's recent civic and community buildings, and its community engagement work.

What emerges is a sophisticated architectural language, a bold approach to context through confident reinterpretations of local vernacular architecture, pioneering sustainable, pre-fabricated construction that does not compromise on style and an approach to conservation that breaks new ground in practice by fusing sound principles with extraordinarily contemporary design thinking.
