Scott Brownrigg


In a year in which a number of practices have retrenched, Scott Brownrigg has continued to grow, adding eight architects to last year’s total of 113 to hold on to 11th place. While the practice has its origins in Guildford, Surrey, and its head office is still there, the London office is now nearly as large, with 47 architects, compared with Guildford’s 52. The other UK offices are in Cardiff and Edinburgh.

Scott Brownrigg is entirely employee-owned, with a non-hierarchical structure. The RIBA has recognised it as one of nine ‘Practice Role Models’ within the industry. The largest overseas office is in Zagreb, Croatia, but in Russia, where the practice does not have an office, it is working on the 270,000m2 Skolkovo Business Park in the Odintsovsky District of Moscow on behalf of Zareyche Developments, part of the Millhouse LLC group. In Asia, the practice has formed a strategic partnership with Hong Kong-based practice One Space.

This year Scott Brownrigg launched SmartShed, an initiative with Savills that ‘integrates urban logistics with high-value technology uses’. This is one of the fruits of Scott Brownrigg’s advanced technologies team, set up in 2015 to use analytical and design expertise to engage with technology-led projects.

Notable projects include The Spark at Southampton Solent University, a £33 million building aimed at enabling a more informal teaching culture and breaking down the teacher-student hierarchy; and the Ice Arena, the home of the Cardiff Devils ice hockey team. The latter is the first building to have been completed in the wider Cardiff International Sports Village development, which Scott Brownrigg is masterplanning.
