Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios is an innovative and ethical architectural practice that approaches design with empathy, sustainability, and artistry. With over 40 years of experience, we have established ourselves as a leading firm, earning numerous industry awards and recognition for our work, including the esteemed RIBA Stirling Prize for our groundbreaking Accordia housing project.
Today, we have four offices across the UK and remain committed to the social and cultural values that shape our design philosophy.
Design is at the core of our practice, and we believe in responding to the unique characteristics of each site, considering its physical and environmental context, history, and future possibilities. Our architectural design is centered around people and place, integrating light, materials, and thoughtful spatial arrangements to create memorable and inspiring spaces.
We are well-prepared to address the challenges of the future, such as growing and fragmented cities, climate change, evolving approaches to well-being, technological advancements, and increased localism. The face of architecture is changing, and we continue to lead the way by pioneering imaginative and inclusive approaches to create exceptional buildings.
Sustainability has been a driving force since our inception, and we are internationally recognized for our environmental expertise. Our commitment to pioneering sustainable design aligns with the imperative transition to a zero-carbon economy. We have experience working with heritage and conservation sites, as well as retrofitting existing buildings. As founding supporters of One Planet Living and Architects Declare, we actively promote sustainable practices within the architectural community.
Social and environmental responsibility is integral to our practice. We are dedicated to designing communities that support sustainable lifestyles and embrace diverse patterns of living, learning, and working. Our buildings are developed in collaboration with the communities they serve, fostering a strong sense of identity for their users. Through collaboration, mentoring, teaching, and knowledge sharing, we strive to make a positive difference through our work.
Research plays a significant role in our practice, running parallel to our architectural projects. Our research initiatives explore sustainable design, evolving urban living and working approaches, and innovative solutions. We collaborate with like-minded consultants and have global connections with organizations and charities that enable us to share our expertise and test emerging knowledge.
