Stuart Horwood

Having been instrumental in the setting up of 1508 London in 2010 and as Chief Executive Officer, Stuart brings more than 35 years of industry leadership and executive management experience.

Since joining, Stuart has managed corporate direction and strategy, and is responsible for sharing the company’s operational strategy and vision.

Previously, Stuart has held senior positions in UK and New Zealand governments, was Senior Vice President at Morgan Stanley and was Chief Commercial Officer at BT Wholesale & Ventures, with revenue exceeding £11 billion, and ultimately serving as Managing Director, leading BT Group to become Europe’s largest telecoms service provider.

Hamish Brown

Having been involved since 1508 London’s inception, Hamish has been pivotal to the growth of the company and has championed the studio’s expansion from private residential into multi-unit developments and hospitality, helping 1508 London become one the world’s most revered architecture and interior design studios.

As an Interior Architect, Hamish’s ability to understand every facet of the design process ensures he is perfectly positioned to help support clients throughout their journey at 1508 London. His profound commitment to clients’ experiences has installed a dedication to the creation of timeless, elegant spaces of the highest quality, all of which are informed by a unique narrative, grounded in functionality with no one set style.

Prior to 1508 London, Hamish held senior positions at established property development companies including Stonemartin before founding his own studio Hamish Benjamin specialising in prime central London residential development.
