Walker Simpson Architects

Architects from 33 Piccadilly, Manchester, United Kingdom
Our principal aim is to work with pioneering clients who wish to commission architecture that will inspire people and contribute to a progressive and sustainable future.

We listen to our clients' needs and maintain a commitment to thoroughly understand and interpret each project brief. We produce effective and highly affordable solutions that meet each programme's design criteria and bring added value through the flair and imagination of our studio. A significant proportion of our work includes the use of standardised off-site fabrication techniques.

Our work ranges from masterplanning sustainable developments and landmark civic projects, through to individual schemes for private clients. We have extensive experience in the refurbishment, remodelling and enhancing of existing buildings including work with English Heritage and gaining Planning Consents for Listed Buildings.


We also act as Client Design Advisor, assisting in the professional development of a project brief and offering critical analysis on emerging building design proposals. We interrogate the property case, challenging quality assumptions and demanding value for money at every stage of a project's development. Advice has been given on projects totalling c.£1bn to date.


Through our commitment to reducing carbon emissions, we are delivering zero carbon designs, on-site energy generation and developing positive carbon innovations. This direction has been recognised through a number of regional, national and international awards for sustainabilty and design excellence.
