For more than twenty years, Berman Guedes Stretton has diligently crafted its architecture and created an enviable portfolio of outstanding buildings for our clients.
We have worked hard to develop and refine our unique creative approach to architectural design. This has been rewarded with numerous national design competitions and prestigious awards from the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA), the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and The Civic Trust. The practice has also been shortlisted for the Architects Journal ‘Building of the Year’ in 2014 and was a Finalists in the World Architecture Awards (WAF) in 2015 and 2016.
Sympathetic treatment of historic buildings are the cornerstone of our practice. Much of our work has been in world renowned historic environments, involving listed buildings, scheduled ancient monuments, and a World Heritage Site. We believe that valuable lessons can be learned from the past and applied when designing contemporary buildings. There is no attempt however to slavishly follow trend and fashion but rather to maintain a tradition of honest expression in structure and construction. Carefully crafting beautiful and durable buildings that complement their setting is fundamental to the way we work.
We have extensive experience in delivering a wide range of building types, both new and refurbished, in the arts and culture, leisure, workplace, and hospitality sectors. A particular strength is in Higher Education where we have a reputation not only for creating high quality academic buildings but also innovative administrative offices, social spaces and residential buildings.
