Gurvinder Khurana & Nigel Tresise, Co-founders, align

align is a dynamic, innovative and award-winning interior architecture and design agency, co-founded by Directors Nigel Tresise and Gurvinder Khurana. Our offices are in Farringdon, on the edge of both the City of London and of Clerkenwell and our work is both national and international.

Our business is all about aligning our clients’ brands and businesses with environments that have been crafted around real people’s wants and needs, seeking to balance brand expression with end-user ergonomics. We specialise in the workplace, hospitality, residential and mixed-use markets.

Clients who work with align will encounter a real service culture and willingness to listen, as well as a flexible and pragmatic attitude to design and delivery. You will find us to be honest, personable and straight-dealing, as well as great believers in the power of collaboration.

align’s client base covers a wide spectrum of sectors, including music, media, finance, law, technology, charity and the public sector. We love this cross-fertilisation of influences and how it keeps our studio and cosmopolitan team constantly open and creative.

Our work is regularly published around the world - in workspace-specialist magazines such as MIX Interiors, OnOffice, FX, Das Büro, Office Shapshots, Office et Culture - as well as in leading design and hospitality titles.

align’s projects have won or been shortlisted for more than a dozen awards, including winning ‘Hospitality Interiors Project of the Year’ at Mixology 2017. We were also double silver winners at the London Design Awards 2017. As a company, we were given the ‘Excellence in Interior Design Services’ award at the Architecture Awards 2017, named ‘Best Small Design Studio’ at the London Design Awards 2015 and were finalists for ‘Design Practice of the Year’ at Mixology 2017. In January 2017, FX Magazine named us ‘One to Watch’.
