Who We Are
Flanagan Lawrence is an award-winning, design-led studio of architects and interior designers, based in London. Our practice has continuously expanded to develop extensive and collective expertise across a broad range of public and private sectors and building typologies.
We have experience of designing for residential – private, BTR, affordable, Prime – commercial, hospitality and leisure, cultural and masterplan projects.
At Flanagan Lawrence, the interest in what we do is gained through understanding the aspirations of a place and its inhabitants and delivering a response which is unique to that location and those people.
Our creativity directly translates into the fresh and progressive designs we create. Through a method of rigorous exploration and evaluation of concepts, ideas and detail, our innovative designs are both creatively compelling and commercially effective. Dynamic teamwork, both internally and externally, ensures we provide timely, effective and transparent information. Our contemporary, energy efficient designs are well planned and detailed and take account of the everyday needs of the people who use them.
Our architecture is varied in its language but consistent in its ambition to placepeople at the heart of each project.
“We don’t assume that the way something has been done in the past makes it inevitably right for the future and so we spend time with our clients developing the brief and ensuring that the maximum potential of a site is realised - to the benefit of new residents, the existing local population and the client.”
Flanagan Lawrence considers sustainability from the outset of a project, allowing it to inform early strategic decisions. We encourage the reduction in energy and resource consumption by adopting a tailored range of methods and technologies, from inception to completion and beyond.
We recognise that successful sustainable design needs to be a team effort and have established close relationships with leading specialist consultants in the field, with whom we collaborate regularly. We also contribute to wider discussions and activities within design and construction by means of our involvement in industry forums such as the UK-Green Building Council, and projects such the RIBA-coordinated Carbon Buzz.
Our approach to sustainability is not limited to the buildings we design, the way in which we manage our business is under continual review with the aim of reducing energy and resource consumption, carbon emissions and waste.
Flanagan Lawrence believes that the use of BIM is beneficial to clients, designers, the supply chain and the end user. We adopted BIM methodologies in 2011 and have quickly become recognised as an industry leader in the exploration of 3D/4D/5D design. Our progressive approach to collaborative technologies has seen us present at internationally recognised conferences such as BIM Show Live and Autodesk University.
Flanagan Lawrence is fully committed to delivering projects to the highest BIM standard andoffers BIM consultancy services ranging from the creation of Employer’s Information Requirements (EIR) to Information management and clash coordination.
