BackgroundEdit

The company was formed in 1978 by architects Richard Feilden (1950–2005) and Peter Clegg, operating from small premises in Bath, Somerset. The company designed and constructed low-energy houses.[3] Over the next two decades the company won awards for a number of school design projects and gained "a formidable reputation in the education sector".[3] With over 100 staff the firm developed an "unusually democratic" way of operating.[3]

Feilden was accidentally killed by a falling tree in 2005[3] and the practice continued under Peter Clegg and senior partner Keith Bradley.[4]

In 2008 the practice won the RIBA Stirling Prize, with fellow designers Alison Brooks Architects and Macreanor Lavington, for their Cambridge high-density housing development, Accordia. Bradley picked up a cheque for £20,000.[4]

Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios currently has offices in Bath, London, Manchester, Belfast and Edinburgh and works across a wide range of sectors including Education, Housing and Urban Design, and has developed expertise in creative reuse.
