Eric Parry to shed jobs

  • Comment

Eric Parry Architects has admitted it is consulting over redundancies – just days after winning the AJ Retrofit Award with its Holburne Museum in Bath

The practice, which also landed an RIBA Award for the scheme, admitted it was expecting to shed staff but denied it was to lose a quarter of its 63-strong workforce, as has been rumoured. Parry said: ‘We are having a cyclical breathing in, but there is not a sense of crisis. We will undoubtedly be shrinking a little bit.’

He added: ‘There has been a double-dip recession and we are experiencing the echoes of this.

‘We have a number of projects with planning permission, which have fallen behind by six to nine months, but we are optimistic they will go ahead.’

The practice was recently on the shortlist for the Southbank Centre competition and featured at this year’s Venice biennale as part of the Inhabitable Models exhibition with Haworth Tompkins and Lynch Architects.

Last year the 29-year old practice was appointed to masterplan a 4 hectare former Dairy Crest site in White City, west London, and also landed planning consent for a mixed-use project to redevelop a city block in Soho, London
