NORD to split

The founders of award-winning Scottish practice NORD are about to go their separate ways

Co-founders Robin Lee and Alan Pert were both unable to comment however sources close to the practice confirm the split is imminent.

It is understood Lee is to set up his own studio based in London and Glasgow while Pert will continue to run a practice under the NORD name.

A domain name for Robin Lee Architecture has been registered with a notice announcing a website under construction.

NORD (Northern Office for Research and Design) was founded in July 2002 by the duo who had both previously worked at Zoo Architects in Glasgow.

Three years later the co-directors were included in the AJ’s prestigious 40 Under 40.

The outfit’s most high-profile recent projects include the four-bedroom Shingle House, commissioned by Alain de Botton as part of his Living Architecture programme (AJ 03.03.11) and its substation on the Olympic Park in east London.

The studio’s competition-winning scheme to build a new headquarters for Wexford County Council is on target to complete later this year. The €40 million project will house 300 staff and is designed to give each desk a view over the city.
