Architecture + Urbanism

Architecture + Urbanism

A leading practice for urban regeneration, we design buildings and spaces that are well-considered and imaginative. Our work is commercially astute, context-led and prioritises townscape quality. Our team of architects and urbanists feel passionately that architecture can and does make a positive difference to the world we live in. We have built up a portfolio of acclaimed projects across the capital and the South-East. As experts in urban regeneration, much of our work is housing led and we understand all of the elements that make somewhere a great and sustainable place to live, with notable experience in the design of health and leisure facilities, shops, schools and offices. Every one of our projects is the result of an open, thorough and collaborative design process which draws on years of experience while embracing contemporary thinking. We pursue design excellence, from the detail of a door handle to the scale of an entire neighbourhood. 

We don’t have a house style. Our design ethos unlocks what is unique and special about a project through listening to the client, understanding their vision and rigorously analysing the context, both physical and social, to maximise the creative opportunity. We thrive on designing in the urban environment and are equally comfortable tackling small and challenging infill sites as we are creating new residential quarters, refurbishing derelict buildings and bringing under-utilised brownfield sites back to life. 

With you at every stage

We are proud of the quality of service we offer and believe that while our Practice has grown in size over the years, we haven’t lost sight of how to give our clients the personal service they deserve. Every project is overseen by a dedicated Partner, with a Director or an Associate, ensuring clear lines of communication throughout. The vast majority of our clients have chosen to work with us for many years and entrust us with taking their projects from the earliest stages of feasibility, through planning and detailed design, and into construction. We aim to build out everything that we design, and design with this in mind.

Design excellence at every scale

We are internationally accredited for quality assurance, audited regularly and have solid procedures in place for measuring the success of all aspects of our output. But more than that, our design ethos means we are constantly pursuing architecture of the highest quality, always remembering that while numbers are important, every flat, office or classroom we design will one day be where someone lives, works or learns.

Innovation at every detail

We are empowered by technology, not constrained, and while we’ve been at the forefront of the industry for many years, harnessing the power of CAD as it has developed and pioneering the use of Building Information Modelling (BIM) across a range of scales, we still know when it’s time to pick up a pen. Our enthusiasm for modern methods of construction and off-site fabrication ensures that opportunities for effective and efficient delivery are never missed.
