Panter Hudspith Architects was founded by Mark Panter and Simon Hudspith in 1987. We are a team of architects, designers and organisers dedicated to creating high quality modern buildings that respond sensitively to their environment, but remain unquestionably of their time.
We aim to confront design problems in an innovative way and promote dialogue with careful interaction between clients, consultants and contractors. We actively include both local and national authorities in all stages of the design and construction process. This search for inclusion creates an architecture that allows people to make tangible places of character.
Many of our projects have been realised in sensitive historic settings and they have engendered a way of thinking that is rooted in understanding context in its broadest sense – which we use as a starting point for the creative process. It is through our understanding of context that we can ensure that the decisions that are made throughout the project are the right ones. Housing projects designed from the home as primary focus; uncompromisingly functional retail schemes with an absolute sense of place; and cultural buildings, which illuminate their context.
Our buildings have a track record for excellence, driven by their essential qualities:
- they are deeply rooted in their place
- they are well built
- they are valued by the users and communities who inhabit them
- they are commercially successful for our clients
We design buildings of quality, resulting in numerous awards to date including
- RIBA Awards
- Architect of the Year Awards
- Civic Trust Awards & Commendations
- AIA UK Excellence in Design Awards
- Natural Stone Awards
- Housing Design Awards
- Brick Awards
- Concrete Society Awards
- amongst many others.
The practice has been widely published and has been featured in both national and international press, including CABE and English Heritage publications.
Our current projects range from individual houses and small city infill sites to £500m mixed-use masterplan schemes creating new urban quarters with homes, workspace, retail, community and cafe/bars.
