Practice Structure


Integrated Design teams

We have always believed that good, responsible design is only possible with significant contributions from different disciplines. This allows us to rapidly explore a wide range of solutions from many points of view. Our architectural teams design and deliver projects from the earliest sketch through to strategic design, construction drawings and completion. They work closely with our specialist design teams throughout the process to deliver an integrated vision. These teams include structural and environmental engineering, sustainability, urban and landscape design, industrial design, workplace and interior design together with our own research teams.

Specialist teams

This integrated design team is complemented by a range of other disciplines including design management, design communications, visualisation and film, communications, modelmaking and our materials research centre.
