Stockwool has been recognised as the AJ100’s fastest growing practice after it doubled its head count of architects in three years
Stockwool, which rebranded two years ago from Stock Woolstencroft, had taken a year out from the AJ100 but has made an impressive return. This year, the practice is in joint 48th position, with 49 architects.
In the 2015 AJ120 it was in joint 78th position with 31 architects, and the previous year it was joint 89th with just 23 architects. To more than double its head count of architects over three years in which there has been anxiety over Brexit, both before and after the referendum, is a considerable achievement.
The practice has a firm focus, both in terms of type of work and geographically. Based in London, it works in the capital and across the South East, concentrating on urban regeneration – chiefly housing. Its timber-clad, grass-roofed Clock House Gardens development in Welwyn was recently named Best First Time Buyer Home in this year’s Evening Standard New Homes Awards. On a larger scale, Stockwool has won planning permission for the Limehouse Cut regeneration scheme, a £45 million project that will create 184 new homes plus a mixed-use commercial space.
Stockwool is more than a quarter of a century old. With the confidence to continue doing what it does best, and doing it well, we can expect further growth.
