Pilbrow & Partners is a 70-strong architecture and urban design studio, established in 2013. The practice is led by partners Fred Pilbrow, Tal Ben-Amar, Keb Garavito Bruhn, Sam Yousif and Gareth Wilkins.
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 and urban planners, the practice is supported by specialist resources in town planning, environmental analysis, parametric modelling, BIM, visualisation and model making.
Pilbrow & Partners currently have a team of over 70 architects and urban planners working on projects in the UK and abroad from their Farringdon studios.
Recent and current projects include The Waterman in Greenwich Peninsula, the new UCLH phase 5 hospital in Bloomsbury (awarded the American Architecture Prize 2017 and Planning award 2017) and the design of C2 Wood Wharf at Canary Wharf’s new Wood Wharf district (overall winner of AJ’s Architecture Tomorrow 2016). Pilbrow & Partners are also working for U+I on the redevelopment of 8 Albert Embankment including new homes, workspace, retail and a new home for the London Fire Brigade Museum.
Our design approach is open-minded, inquisitive and enthusiastic. We do not assume we know the best solution to a given problem at the outset and we work collaboratively with our clients, fellow consultants and other project stakeholders to carefully evaluate potential alternative design approaches. We are creative and imaginative, yet our creativity and imagination are always grounded in careful research and our conclusions are argued from logic and economy.
