Craig Hamilton is an architect practicing in mid-Wales. Craig first developed a fascination for classical culture in his native South Africa, and he has since developed an approach to architecture which uses classical forms as a rich source of inspiration.
His firm, Craig Hamilton Architects, was established in 1991 and over the years has gained a reputation for progressive Classical and traditional architecture. Based in Radnorshire, the firm works on projects throughout the United Kingdom and abroad. In recent years it has specialised in sacred and monumental architecture and particularly the design of chapels and mausoleums. The practice is involved with every aspect of the design of these buildings, including fabrics, light fittings, furniture and fittings, and often designs elements of architectural modelling and carving for incorporation into the architecture. In this way, the practice embraces a way of making architecture that is unusual in the 21st century.
The new book, published by Lund Humphries, is authored by Ellis Woodman, Director of the Architecture Foundation. It offers 6 in-depth studies of six of Craig Hamilton’s buildings, and is beautifully illustrated with his drawings and plans. It also includes his collaboration with another INTBAU member, the sculptor Alexander Stoddart.
