CHAP – Cook Haffner Architectural Platform – is an architectural platform founded by Sir Peter Cook and Erlend Blakstad Haffner.

Sir Peter Cook and Erlend Blakstad Haffner are the founding partners of CHAP, Cook Haffner Architectural Platform. With offices in London, Oslo, Belgrade, Colombo and Shenzhen the platform, represents a wide stability and starting point for future action and their ongoing projects in Europe, Brazil, the Middle East and Asia.

The platform is a fundament for creating the ever New - where the architectural project, with its elements tending to last in space and change over time, is just a base for upcoming research. CHAP encourages an experimental approach in architectural discourse, using innovative design tools and methodologies. The focus of the research is placed on architectural moments and atmospheres, implying movement and change as a constant. The platform opposes spatial borders and tends to push the boundaries of established architectural practice.
