We are Lungfish Architects, an innovative, open and collaborative practice, which takes a client-first approach to projects – and we’re now five years old!
Celebrating our fifth anniversary, it’s safe to say that our team are not ones for being complacent or standing still. Right now, we’re utilising our experience and honing our skills to deliver multimillion pound residential schemes, flagship net-zero forest schools and all-through schools, community spaces and even Covid-safe office environments for our front-line workers.
Every project designed by the team is derived from a passion that places the end user at the heart. Working side-by-side with clients, we establish ourselves as part of the team and through careful interrogation of the brief, understanding the necessities of the project and client aspirations, we have achieved some truly remarkable outcomes in the last five years.
“Five years ago, we started out designing small classroom and school extensions, and now we’ve successfully delivered over 80 offsite projects and are designing brand-new, all-through schools with exceptional learning environments” says Simon Reid, managing director.
“I am incredibly proud of how the practice has grown, we’ve taken the learning we’ve gained from our education design projects, and utilised and enhanced these learnings for projects in residential, extra care, commercial and community sectors.”
We’re currently working on exciting and innovative residential designs that will give whole communities much needed, sustainable housing, forest schools that create a harmony with the natural environment, and commercial buildings that provide a safe working environment for its workers, even in Covid-times.
Our talented team has grown with us over the course of the last five years too. We now have talented specialists in education, residential, commercial, community architecture and interior design – as well as urban designers, masterplanners and sustainability experts.
Through creating engaging designs, the end users and clients have a great affinity to their places and spaces, allowing them to enjoy living, learning and working in their buildings.
“We’ve been fortunate to win some fantastic awards and accolades for our projects and our people, and as the practice continues to grow, we’re looking forward to celebrating our team, designs, and exciting new projects.”
A big ‘cheers’ to the next five years.
