18 London architecture studios photographed by Marc Goodwin

These shots by photographer Marc Goodwin offer a glimpse inside the offices of British architects including Norman Foster, Nicholas Grimshaw and the late Zaha Hadid.

Marc Goodwin, who runs the photography studio Archmospheres, has captured the working conditions of some of London's biggest and most prolific architecture practices.

As well as big-name firms like Foster + PartnersGrimshaw, David Chipperfield Architects and Zaha Hadid Architects, he also visited established local practices such as Metropolitan Workshop and Cullinan Studio.

"I think this is an untold part of the story of architecture: a study of the spaces where people design spaces," Goodwin told Dezeen.

"This story connects with people on a few different levels. There are architects that want to know what other people's studios are like: bigger, better, brighter, cooler, more beautiful – or the reverse!" he added.

"I hope it will also interest people as less traditional – but still beautiful – form of architectural photography."

The studios are located inside an array of buildings, ranging from a purpose-built space to a converted greetings-card factory, and includes spaces that are both cozy and austere.

It is the latest in a series of photosets by Goodwin documenting the studios of architects. He previously visited the workplaces of Nordic architects, and is planning his next series on Paris.
