Fat is a London-based practice run by Sean Griffiths, Charles Holland and Sam Jacob. Established in 1995, its early interior and art projects earned Fat an international reputation for innovative architectural thinking. Larger-scale projects have given the office an opportunity to develop these ideas. The Blue House in east London has been described as ‘the most memorable new house in London since the 1980s’.

Current projects include a park and community centre in Hoogvliet, an office building in Amersfoort and an art school in Boxtel, all in the Netherlands, as well as a social housing scheme in Manchester. Fat’s directors contribute extensively to architectural debate. They have taught and lectured at universities in the UK, Europe and the US, and have written for numerous publications. Fat is committed to making architecture that engages with its social context.

By connecting architecture to wider culture, the practice seeks to make architecture that is progressive, radical and, most of all, liked.
