Feilden + Mawson is set to become the first 'creative business' to move into Somerset House ( pictured), according to one of its senior staff.
Managing partner Paul Rynsard said the architect made the call to move in order to accommodate its growing business.
The practice is set to double in size from 15 to 30 people in order to cope with new commissions, such as the redevelopment of the UK Supreme Court, which is due to be submitted for planning in April.
Rynsard said: 'We're dubbing our new base the 'stamp office' because of its historic role as a tax office.'
Feilden + Mawson is acting as architectural advisor to the ongoing conservation of the historic 18th century building, including the renovation of 'first-floor portico rooms', according to the architect. by Rob Sharp
