Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios
The project that garnered the most attention from Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios last year was not strictly its project at all. The AJ Small Projects Awards shortlisted Observatory, a tiny mobile studio for an artist in residence, was designed by three young architects working at the practice. When they won the competition, run by arts organisation SPUD, the practice – which had already been supportive – embraced the scheme and made it one of its own, while still allowing the originators to enjoy the publicity. It held an exhibition at its London office and encouraged the designers not only to complete the project but also to embark on research into the use of charred wood, which formed a major component of the scheme.
This fostering of talent seems a vital part of the ethos of a practice that has enjoyed great success both in the UK and overseas, often in association with landscape architect Grant Associates.
Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios’ Plymouth School of Creative Arts was shortlisted for Building of the Year in this year’s AJ100 awards. Having picked up 16 prizes in total last year, the practice is no stranger to such accolades.
It has always had strong sustainability credentials, recently being appointed to design a social space for Kellogg College at the University of Oxford, which will be created to Passivhaus standards. And it will play a part in the massive Silvertown Quays development in east London.
Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios was part of the team that won the Stirling Prize for Accordia back in 2008 but, far from resting on its laurels, it is continuing to design adventurous, considered and sustainable projects in a range of sectors, while also nurturing young talent.
