In recognition of their expertise and innovation in design across sectors including education, culture, arts, masterplanning and heritage, Feilden Fowles was recently named Young Architect of the Year 2016.
The London-based partnership was established in 2009 by Fergus Feilden and Edmund Fowles, following recognition of their complementary talents through early student collaborations and the successful delivery of their first building, Ty Pren. The practice now delivers a range of socially and environmentally sustainable buildings across a variety of sectors and aims to make architecture that is rich in character and distinct in identity.
The design approach is both academic and hands-on, researching techniques and precedents while making large scale mock-ups and testing the physical and visual properties of materials. Ambitious in their service to clients, the practice strives for quality and permanence in built form, translating historic or vernacular precedent and interpreting cultural references for a present day audience.
