Established in 1996, Sergison Bates architects have earned a reputation as one of the UK’s leading architectural practices by successfully engaging with all dimensions of architectural and urban design. The main office in London is international in outlook and staff composition, and in 2010 a second office was opened in Zürich. Both offices are currently involved in a wide range of international projects ranging from urban planning to regeneration, public buildings, housing and private houses.
Sergison Bates’ projects are informed by a sensitive approach to place, the experiential potential of materials and construction and a concern for the environmental, social and economic aspects of sustainability. They aspire to create a design-led architecture that is contemporary and rooted in its context, at all scales, and are committed to a research-based approach, supported by the partners’ academic work.
The practice has won recognition from architectural critics and numerous national and international awards – among them the Erich Schelling Prize and Heinrich Tessenow Gold Medal.
