New Practices #10: FPA Architects

  • Comment

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

FPA Architects, Alderley Edge, Cheshire

Founded: September 2009

Main people: Geoff Pickering, James Hindley and Craig Jones

Where have you come from? Geoff, James and Craig met while working at SW Foulkes Architects in Manchester. Geoff was an equity director of the firm, which worked principally on large residential and mixed-use developments. James headed up the Georgia office until war broke out in August 2008 and the Georgian economy collapsed.  Craig was predominantly involved with the firm’s multiple housing sites, key worker schemes and masterplanning projects.

What work do you have? We’re working on ambitious, one-off residential projects for private clients and developers, volume housing schemes with an eco intention, property remodeling and extensions, as well as retail and office fit outs.

What are your ambitions? We’d like to build a practice that is respected and recognised for investing that extra attention to detail that marks the fundamental difference between an adequate building and a successful solution.

How optimistic are you? Very.You have to be. If you don’t believe in your own potential how can you ever succeed? We’ve had an overwhelming amount of support, help and advice from friends and clients, who have recommended us to their peers. We are very fortunate to work with people who share our enthusiasm.
