About Alan Higgs Architects

Alan Higgs Architects is a full service architectural practice, based in Marylebone. Our work encompasses all aspects of building design from pre-purchase and options appraisals, master planning, building design, landscape and interiors and furniture. Over 220 completed commissions in Britain, Australia and Europe include new houses, full-scale reconstructions of buildings, work for schools and arts and religious institutions and commercial fit-outs. Much of our work seeks to ease new life into old buildings – we have worked on over 30 listed buildings – and sustainable building and environment technologies are at the heart of our thinking. At all times we are conscious of our clients’ budgetary and programme concerns and help to plan and progress their projects to conclusion.

Our work is characterised by a sense of order and calm, finely composed relationships between spaces and between inside and out, and the capture of as much natural light as possible. Our designs respond with vision to private clients’ books, art and furniture, and form optimal settings for their specific lifestyles and aspirations. Work for arts and education clients, often carried out in phases, embodies the values and missions of the institutions. Our architecture has recognisable and themes and consistent values, but provides individual, fresh and creative solutions whatever the context and brief.
