Giovanni Bonfanti


Giovanni graduated from the University of Venice and worked as an architect in Milan and Venice before moving to London. He joined Walters & Cohen in 1997, was made an Associate in 2001 and a Director in 2007.

Giovanni has an integral role in the design development of many projects the practice undertakes and is particularly skilled in detail design. He and Cindy headed the team for the award-winning building at Bedales School, the American School in London and Regent High School, which won four awards, including a RIBA National Award in 2016. It's a project he is especially proud of, and has given tours for Open House London several times.

Giovanni led the International College for The King's School in Canterbury with Cindy. He also worked on their first school abroad, The King's School Shenzhen International, and (same city, different client) Broadstone Academy. Continuing the international theme, he is currently working on designs for a new school in Cambodia.
