Liam Russell Architects is a multi-award-winning practice based in Brighton, working in London and throughout the UK and Internationally. The practice is currently engaged on major regeneration projects in London and the regions, including bespoke commissions for a range of clients.

Working with major financial institutions such as La Salle and the HSBC Pension Fund, large developers such as Inland Homes, charities, the public sector, housing associations and private clients gives the practice an insight into the demands of a cross-sector client base and to working with budgets ranging from £500 up to £35m.

This year, Liam Russell Architects reaches its tenth year Anniversary, having won 6 awards alone in 2017 for both residential and commercial projects. When establishing the practice, Liam’s vision was to create inspiring, innovative and ambitious architecture, whilst still being a practice that rolled up its sleeves and tackled the complexity of bringing design and building closer to one another. Our reputation as a design-led practice, that can navigate the planning process without compromising the ambitions of its clients, has led to an enviable success rate whether for one-off houses or large developer housing projects.

Since its inception, the LRA team continues to grow and currently resides in the heart of Brighton. The Practice is deeply committed to the people that it employs and engages them fully, allowing them an autonomy that breeds innovation and commitment. There is a strong company culture and each member of the team who has joined the practice shares Liam’s vision and of a genuine belief that buildings should be beautiful, engaging and thought-provoking. The practice’s CSR includes pro-bono work for charities and donations to well-deserved causes such as the YMCA.

Sustainability is integral to what we do and as members of the AECB (Association for Environment Conscious Building) we encourage all our clients to engage in this way of thinking. We are amongst the 13.5% of practices working with BIM, (Building Information Modeling) an intelligent 3D model-based process that gives architecture, engineering, and construction professionals the insight and tools to more efficiently plan, design, construct, and manage buildings and infrastructure, putting us at the vanguard of a new digital construction era. The UK government’s implementation of BIM has ambitions for the UK to become the world leaders.

The practice appeared in Britain’s Best Architecture in 2012, the RIBA Journal 2013, and won several awards in 2016 for its work on school, community and residential projects, as well as an award for sustainability. This year the practice has won 3 RICS shortlisting’s and won both Best Community & Leisure Architecture Firm - South East England & Best West Sussex Coastal Architecture Conversion Project.

LRA’s landmark scheme in East Croydon, Carolyn House, will create an outstanding development with the central links of accessibility, design and landscaping all effectively integrated. We intend to provide both community and public benefit, as well as creating a unique and special identity for the development itself. The building will be transformed from one of dated 1960’s fabric and performance characteristics to that of a virtually self-sufficient sustainable ‘machine for living’ to suit the requirements of a 21st Century occupant and provide for a sustainable future for all.

The practice is increasingly gravitating towards regeneration in all its forms – from the smallest to the largest projects, from the more subtle and discreet to the most overt and encompassing – no matter what the context, the same desire pervades; to leave a positive, lasting legacy that is timeless and joyful. Reinvigorating and breathing life into areas, whilst respecting the local environment, supporting sustainability, cultural diversity and the people that inhabit and use those spaces.
