Wilkinson Eyre has emerged as the fastest growing practice in this year’s AJ120
Awarded to the practice that has increased both its fee earnings and total number of architects employed by the greatest amount, in this tightly fought category, winner Wilkinson Eyre has been successful on both counts.
Architectural fees paid to the UK office are up a massive 98 per cent from £12.8 million to £25.2 million.
Meanwhile, the number of architects in the UK has increased 57 per cent from 51 to 80 and has seen the double Stirling prize winner leap up the AJ120 league table from position 32 to 18.
The firm, which also made the shortlist for Practice of the Year, has a healthy fees per UK architecture staff number too – at £223,000 it ranks third in the AJ120 on this metric.
Stand-out projects completed in the past year include the Maggie’s Centre in Oxford, inspired by the concept of a tree house, and Weston Library at the University of Oxford.
High-profile ongoing projects include the second phase of the Battersea Power Station redevelopment for Malaysian client SP Setia.
