Innovation in education – and beyond

Our roots lie in school building design, but our experience spreads much further. Individually we’ve masterplanned housing schemes, delivered student accommodation, designed luxury apartments and refurbished some of the high street’s biggest stores. Together we’ve helped our clients create more than 10,000 school places since 2013.

Our modular expertise and standardised designs are helping schools, academies and local authorities achieve so much more for their communities. They are uniquely designed to minimise disruption, maximise budgets, empower decision making and help us meet the tightest of deadlines. But they’re far from all we do. We also run a wide range of bespoke projects, helping clients create positive, people-focused places in education and far beyond.

A fresh approach to every project

Every project starts with you – the challenges you face, the hopes you have, the opportunities to do more. We bring to the table a range of tried-and-tested design routes, from streamlined and standardised to unique and bespoke. We’ll help you choose the option that best meets your budget, timeline and ambitions, then guide you all the way from first sketch to finished build.

Our approach

At Lungfish, we take on projects that touch people’s lives. It’s not just about designing buildings, it’s about creating school places, inspiring young people and delivering sustainable, affordable places to call home. If that sounds like your kind of challenge, find out more about architecture careers with our creative team.

Career opportunities

“Our early work with Lungfish Architects allowed us to communicate the vision we had for the school; the understanding that we developed over time proved an important stepping stone in reaching our desired destination. We are now delighted to have moved from planning, design and build to the core purpose of exciting children in their education within this unique space. Our thanks go to all who have been involved in this journey.”
