Foster Wilson Size is an award-winning architectural practice with an international reputation for
the design of public buildings and creative spaces.
To each project, we bring a deep understanding of what makes creative spaces work and an
ambition to help bring positive change for the communities we serve. We collaborate with our
clients to help achieve their ambitions and create buildings that respond in a stimulating and
positive way to their context.
We are a friendly, close-knit studio based in Hoxton, that enjoy the process of design and enjoy a
Our work ranges in scale from small community projects to large new buildings for household
names. Sometimes we build from scratch but, more often than not, our work involves adapting
existing and historic buildings for future use, understanding what makes a building tick before
proposing alterations. We work close to home, across the country and around the globe.
Running as a common thread throughout our work is the idea that better public space, underpins
positive social change and improves the built environment for all.
We are an inclusive work-space that embraces diversity and runs regular work placement
schemes for inner city schools to encourage wider access into the profession.
To reduce carbon emissions, our industry needs to change the way it designs and builds. We are
committed to helping to make this change in the projects that we do. Our projects have been
ground-breaking in the creative re-use of existing spaces and the use of natural ventilation for
large performance spaces. We will continue to research and implement ways in which carbon
emissions can be avoided. The practice is a signatory of the RIBA 2030 Climate Challenge and
Architects Declare a Climate Emergency.
Our projects have won many awards including numerous RIBA Awards, Royal Fine Arts Building
of the Year, Civic Trust, RICS and USITT Awards.
