Corrigan + Soundy + Kilaiditi architects was established on the back of winning a National Architectural Competition in 1983 for a large mixed use scheme in Docklands. Since then we have consistently produced award-winning projects for a wide range of building-types.
We are a close knit practice, the majority of our employees have been with us for over 10 years. We are all architects and ‘design’ is at the core of what we do. We feel we are especially skilled in working in sensitive urban and rural locations – our expertise is the development of explicitly contemporary buildings in locations of historical significance. The practice enjoys every stage of working in these difficult situations, from the intelligent exploration of possibilities through to the concise execution of an appropriate building. We also have considerable experience of the negotiation process involved in the development of sites in Greenbelt and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
We feel we have a proven track record of delivering high quality buildings to programme and budget. Over the last twenty five years the office has built up good working relationships with consultants and contractors, such that we have confidence in the quality of service and product that is delivered to the client. This is reflected in a large number of regional and national awards for our work. It is also important to us that this product is achieved as part of an enjoyable and collaborative relationship with our clients.
As a practice we feel we are facing many challenges both architectural and social. Architecturally the challenge is to realise the potential of each site. Understanding the context of our projects is central to our approach. Whether we are working with a listed building or a vacant plot of land, we aim to turn the constraints and conditions of the site into opportunities, developing unique buildings which ‘belong’ to their place.
Socially the challenge is one of environmental sustainability. This is at the core of our approach and how to integrate this more into each and every project is a goal we have set ourselves.
We have lectured on our work at the RIBA in London, Winchester and for RIBA South.
