AJ100 Ranking


After an exceptional 2014, last year’s fastest-growing practice slipped back slightly this year, from 18th to 23rd. This reflected a fall in overall fees earned out of the UK office from £25.2 million to £21.2 million. But this drop masks an increase in income from UK projects from £15.2 million to £16.1 million, with international fees earned out of London dipping. The number of architects increased slightly to 82 – up from 80 in last year’s survey.

During 2015 the practice completed its renovation of Oxford University’s Grade II-listed Weston Library. The project, which creates research areas, storage and expanded public spaces, is this year’s AJ100 Building of the Year.

Another completion was the Wellcome Collection’s £17.5 million revamp of its Euston Road headquarters. The building’s centrepiece, a £1.1 million spiral staircase, improves access to expanded galleries. Also in London, the practice continued to work on the refurbishment of Battersea Power station.

It also won planning for its three-block Prussian Blue tower scheme of up to 40 storeys for developer Mitsubishi Estate London in the City’s Eastern Cluster. Abroad, it beat an impressive shortlist in the competition to design the Queensbridge Tower in Melbourne, set to be Australia’s second tallest building. It was also chosen to design a new bridge in Copenhagen.

The practice picked up a number of awards during the year, including one for the Weston Library and four for the Maggie’s Centre at Churchill Hospital in Oxford.
