Studio Partington

Studio Partington is a multi-award winning design practice based in London with experience in a broad range of fields.

Over the past two decades we have developed a reputation for combining design ability, sensitive contextual design and urban thinking, with skills in community building and consultation.  Our portfolio includes low-energy houses, estate regeneration, public and community buildings, mixed-use developments, offices, urban design, building research and guidance writing.  Our clients include housing associations, private developers, local authorities and individuals.

We want our projects to contribute positively to the character and identity of their settings, and carefully consider scale, materials, detail and proportion to formulate a contextual response to each site. Our approach recognises the potential of good urban design principles and architecture to enhance the public realm, strengthen communities and minimise environmental impacts.  Guided by the immediate context, the physical and cultural surroundings and by a sound technical knowledge, Studio Partington seeks to recognise and build on the qualities of adjoining neighbourhoods and to enhance rather than stigmatise what surrounds. This methodology leads to environments that are considered, well detailed and thoughtfully put together.
