EVENT - Talk & Tour
Monday, 26 February, 6:30-8:30
How We Work is a Members Only 'behind the scenes' series of informal evenings with a key principal from one of the capital's leading architectural studios.
The evening will look at the studio’s history, current and future projects.
Studio Egret West was established in November 2004 by Christophe Egret and David West with a shared vision: To offer strategy with architectural specificity; and specificity within an overall strategy. Recent projects include plans for Balfron Tower, the East Croydon Bridge, the 'remaking' of the Park Hill Estate in Sheffield and the transformation of Oxford Circus underground station.
Studio Egret West brings surprise and delight to place making. Architecture is too often seen in isolation from its urban context. Planning is too often seen as soulless, unspecific proposals that gather dust on shelves. We believe that the way forward is the osmosis between planning and architecture. Studio Egret West is just this.
Studio Egret West follow no formula and no recipe. Not just architecture by architects and not just planning by planners. 50/50 Architecture and Urban Design with the public realm prioritised as the foundation of sustainable communities.
They are a growing practice of international architects, urban designers, landscape architects, graphic designers and model makers with diverse interests and skills. Their tight-knit team work together in a collaborative studio environment.
