Pilbrow & Partners LLP was established in spring 2013, by founding partners Fred Pilbrow, Tal Ben-Amar, Keb Garavito Bruhn and Sam Yousif. The practice is led by Fred Pilbrow, with over 25 years’ experience designing in the UK and abroad.

The partners have particular strengths in addressing complex planning challenges and a track record of successfully developing proposals in sensitive heritage contexts. As well as a team of architects, the practice is strengthened by specialist resources in the areas of architectural design, parametric modelling, BIM, visualisation and model making.


Farringdon, London

Pilbrow & Partners currently have a team of over 50 architects and urban planners working on projects in the UK and abroad from their Farringdon studios.

Current projects include the design of four prime residential buildings and a new public square within a new village masterplan for Capital and Counties.

Our approach is rigorous and methodical. We seek to optimise a design response by testing alternative approaches to the site and brief. We integrate 3-dimensional modelling into our design process at a very early stage, testing spatial as well as functional relationships from the earliest stages of design. We believe an approach based on rational evaluation rather than subjective opinion provides a sound footing for discussions with planning authorities and other statutory stakeholders. The practice can demonstrate significant past achievements winning support for ambitious and complex schemes within a range of sectors. We place great importance on the craft and quality of our buildings and their contribution to their setting and place within the urban realm.
