Over the years, Wright & Wright has established a reputation for producing elegant, functional and timeless architecture.  Clients include many high-profile organisations in the culture and education sectors.  The practice is skilled at identifying how architecture can give resonant expression to our clients' broader institutional aims and ambitions.

Wright & Wright works closely with clients and partners through an iterative design process to explore ways to plan and build for their long-term future.  The imperative to minimise energy use and maintenance costs is also a fundamental part of our approach, which has resulted in innovative, low carbon buildings, including Lambeth Palace Library and St John’s College, Oxford.

Combining modern design methods with a deep rooted knowledge of traditional construction principles, we create buildings that stand the test of time.  Experienced in imaginatively revitalising historic structures for contemporary use, we specialise in programmes that bring old and new elements together without compromising their distinct character.  We are adept at negotiating with planners, heritage bodies and local interest groups and have always achieved planning and listed building consent at the first time of asking.

Heralded for work that is contextual, radical and confident, Wright & Wright leverages three decades of experience and learning from clients and sees our task as interpreting their vision in built form.  As a cohesive team, we work creatively and collaboratively to produce beautiful architecture that respects its setting, is humanly scaled, and built to last.
