Sevil Peach FCSD, born in Turkey, studied Interior Architecture at Brighton University, England. She formed her London based studio SevilPeach Architecture + Design with Gary Turnbull RIBA in 1994; having previously worked for several leading architectural practices.
As a team they have wide range of experience including retail, healthcare, exhibitions, residential and commercial projects. Over the past twenty four years, Sevil has developed an in depth interest and expertise in workplace design, working with clients who have wished to recast their work environments to both better support their business goals, organisation and employees, and to develop new working patterns and relationships.
Her groundbreaking workplace solutions for the interiors of Vitra’s offices at their Weil am Rhein Campus in Germany, has led to a longstanding and on-going consultancy to Vitra on the creation of new office concepts and products, including the recent Studio Office at Vitra’s Headquarters in Birsfelden, as well as designing numerous furniture fairs, showrooms and offices for them throughout Europe and the USA. More recently she designed and curated the Company Home, as part of the Vitra ‘Work’ 2018 stand at the Orgatec fair.
Her approach to work environments has resulted in an involvement with a great number of internationally recognised projects for clients such as Sony, Mexx, Deloitte, Novartis, Eczacibasi Holdings, Spaces, Swiss Re, Kvadrat, Microsoft and Artek.
She has recently finished a new concept laboratory building for Novartis at their new campus in Shanghai, China and the new Headquarters for Swiss Re in Zurich, with both projects being executed in collaboration with Diener + Diener Architekten. This list of collaboration extends to include Herzog & de Meuron on the Tate Modern Extension, London, as well as other collaborations with Kengo Kuma, Alejandro Aravena, Sergison Bates, FCJZ, Chang Ke, Maya Lin, David Chipperfield and Toshiko Mori.
Sevil was honoured with the ‘Lifetime Achievement Award’ in 2018 by Frame Magazine at their annual Awards, recognising leading talent in the world of Interiors.
