Philip Meadowcroft Architects is an award-winning architectural practice with an established reputation for delivering well-crafted buildings which reflect the everyday lives of the people who use them and the places they occupy.
The practice was founded in 1998 by Phil Meadowcroft having previously been director of Eric Parry Architects. Between 2003 and 2012 the practice was joined by Ann Griffin and became Meadowcroft Griffin Architects developing a diverse portfolio of projects which forms the core of the practice's current work.
We have designed projects for a wide range of clients within public and private sectors including masterplans, urban regeneration plans, schools, houses, offices, art galleries, exhibitions, landscapes, interiors and furniture. Many of these are in complex urban situations and within sensitive historic contexts. We are currently working on the next stages of development for Coram Campus, the Regeneration Plan for Crystal Palace Park, a new classroom building and residential accommodation for Bales College in west London, a new school hall and classroom for Beths Grammar School, Bexley and the reorganisation and expansion of the National Maritime Museum Cornwall. Our most recent completed building, the Queen Elizabeth II Centre for Coram was opened by her Majesty the Queen in December 2018.
We value collaborations with other specialist members of the design team as well our involvement with other architectural practices and organisations including: Haworth Tompkins, Christopher Nash Architecture, J&L Gibbons, muf Art and Architecture, East Architects, Burrell Foley Fischer LLP. Most recently we have teamed up with architect and cinema consultant Stefanie Fischer to provide cinema consultancy services for a range of historic and new cinemas throughout the UK.
We offer a sensitive hands-on approach and personal commitment to each project. Our work develops from a deep understanding of our clients' needs and aspirations, the people and everyday life of a place and the specific physical and cultural context of each project. We avoid 'ready made' solutions and support a collaborative, evolutionary approach which focuses on teamwork and the conditions through which dialogue and discussion can have a positive influence on every stage of the design process.
Our overriding aim is to fulfil our responsibility to our clients and to the wider public in delivering excellent, practical, robust and sustainable buildings which are inspiring and elevating to everyone who uses them.
We are passionate about improving the environment for individuals and communities.
We strongly believe that dialogue and engagement are vital to the development of designs which fully embody our client's needs, aspirations and the culture of a specific place.
