New practice: Peter Morris Architects

  • Comment

The latest in a series of practice profiles looking at architects who have recently decided to go it alone either through choice or redundancy

Peter Morris Architects, London, W1

Main people: Peter Morris

Founded: November 2011

Where have you come from?
Curl La Tourelle Architects, Penoyre & Prasad, Fluid Design Studio and Land Design Studio

What work do you have?
We specialise in participatory design and our architectural expertise includes schools, children’s centres, sure start centres, community centres, libraries and sports facilities.
We aim to make working with us stimulating and pleasurable, promoting shared ownership design solutions. Our work has included helping Queen’s Park Forum set up the first parish council in London for 50 years (sketch proposal for thearea’s community park building, pictured), masterplans for the high street on the Harrow Road, and designing family homes around London.

What are your ambitions?
Our aim is to grow at a sustainable rate, with like-minded staff who have gained experience through long-term apprenticeships. This will ensure we maintain quality, enjoyment and the individuality that we have already created.

How optimistic are you?
The recession will be with us for many moreyears. Having said that, we are optimistic for the future. In an era of austerity, technological change and global warming, if we are to continue to improve education and create more work opportunities then, as designers, we should be leading the way. Start-up practices can take more risks than more established companies and hard times call for innovation.
