The practice was founded as Architecture Limited by Ian Gordon in 1986 but began serious trading only in 1991. It established an expertise in a wide range of building types. In March 2010 Architecture and Partners llp, took over the business, goodwill and assets, to continue the business with the same staff and ethos. Our belief is that our Clients are people who demand a ‘client defined’ solution to their needs. We achieve success by understanding our client’s needs and translating these into solutions which are imaginative, cost effective and buildable. After all these years, Architecture and Partners llp remains a small personal practice known for inspirational design solutions and for making the complicated simple.
We began as a small multi-discipline practice when that was unfashionable; we have since been imitated and now it is much more common. The range of work we are able to do is wider than normal for a small firm because we don’t believe in asking clients to hunt around for separate specialists. As the self styled ‘Polytechnical Consultancy’ we are RIBA and RIAS Chartered Architects: RICS Chartered Surveyors: CIOB Chartered Building Consultants: APS CDM Safety Co-ordinators: Party Wall Surveyors: Planning Consultants, and Conservation Architects.
Our main regulators are the Architects Registration Board (ARB), the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) and the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS).
We are a team of professionals who can provide expertise in most aspects of architecture, planning, property development and project management.
The Partners are Ian Gordon and Elizabeth Gordon; who work with a team of associate consultants including Saroop Hanspal (RICS chartered building surveyor), Wayne Franklin (RICS chartered quantity surveyor), Dr. Ahmet Cinici (architectural designer) and Sue Maguire (Part 1 architect and accountant).
