From single classroom extensions to entire new schools, we are passionate about utilising offsite construction methods and modular design. Our extensive research has informed our approach to design and the projects we’ve delivered across the UK have given us the learning, capability and portfolio to create modular schools that will delight your community.

Buildings that begin with peopleOur Approach
The best designed buildings are rooted in what communities really need. For example, that’s why every school we help to create starts with the children who’ll grow there – and every house we help to build starts with the people who’ll make it home. It’s the way architectural design ought to be, and it’s why the first thing we build is our relationship with you.
Collaborating closely with commissionersWe Are Lungfish
We know how hard our clients work to deliver inspiring places, on tight deadlines, with fixed budgets. That’s why we work together closely with you from day one until the day the doors open, and far beyond. It’s why we use efficient processes and technologies to deliver more – faster, better and for less. And it’s why so many of our clients come back, time and time again.
Giving construction partners the tools they needMeet our team
Every day, our construction partners are tasked with delivering our designs, as well as our promises. They’re in the thick of it, challenged with making everyone happy – and still keeping their business sustainable. That's why we pride ourselves on creating architectural designs that can be built quickly, safely and successfully, to the highest technical standards.
Creating places to be proud ofOur Portfolio
We help our clients create places they're proud of. Spaces people love. Buildings that build futures. Schools programmes that make a real difference to a whole new generation. We’re proud to make it a positive experience, and we make sure you’re right at the heart of it.
With you every step of the wayOur approach
Working with us means just that – sharing, collaborating, rolling your sleeves up and joining the discussion. Our architects are accessible and available to help you at any time. You’ll find them in your office, in your community and knee-deep in your foundations.
It’s the best way to give you the results you need. And that’s something we’re committed to from day one. We’ll make sure your project is a rewarding, enjoyable journey – mitigating risk, ensuring compliance and guaranteeing quality to keep that big idea of yours burning bright.

“I am just putting into writing how thrilled we are as a school with our new classrooms. The whole process from beginning to end went very smoothly and the design team worked with us to ensure that the end result was just what we needed. [The classrooms] are definitely a wow factor.”

“Having worked with a number of architects previously, working with Lungfish was a positive experience. Lungfish listened to our ideas and vision and were able to adapt the plans for our school to suit our needs within the budget restraints we were under. The project was completed within an extremely tight timescale and the school was able to open on time, which was an amazing feat.”
David Dyson, Head Teacher, Riseley C of E Primary School
“Our pupils and staff are delighted with the transformation of our site following our building and refurbishment project… despite a huge amount of work going on, the approach adopted meant that disruption during the work was at an absolute minimum. A great success!”
Ruth Wilkes, Principle, Castle Newnham School
