FCBStudios have extensive experience of creating new communities through masterplanning and detailed design of residential buildings. Our Stirling Prize winning scheme Accordia is widely regarded as setting new standards for housing in the UK.
Ten of our housing schemes have won RIBA National Housing Design Awards, including Overall Winner two years running. We were also named Best Private Housing Architect twice in the BD Architect of the Year Awards. FCBStudios’ senior partners have participated in a range of national housing steering groups, including the RIBA Brownfields First Initiative, the Urban Task Force, and Building for Life, the joint CABE, Civic Trust and House Builders Federation initiative.
The chronic shortfall in new housing is now a vital issue and we believe that an emphasis on design quality should be at the forefront of new initiatives. Our long track record in designing for sustainability equips us to join in the pursuit of zero carbon housing and we are actively engaged in designing for minimum environmental impact.
We design buildings that are responsive to different patterns of living and provide intimacy, privacy and security whilst also helping to create a sense of community.
