Squire and Partners is a friendly and inclusive office, where hard work is combined with a lively social life and strong team spirit. We offer experience of a broad range of projects from small bespoke fitouts to large-scale urban masterplans. The emphasis is always focussed on responding to context, sourcing the finest building materials and delivering a meticulously detailed product.
The practice IT team ensure that our complex communication systems are kept operational and at the forefront of technological advances. Squire & Partners invests substantially in IT and communications every year to ensure we are able to provide the best and most efficient service to clients and design teams.
The practice has a dedicated computer visualisation team who provide a vital tool in understanding buildings and spaces. Their work greatly assists the design and planning process, from simple massing diagrams to certified planning views and complex renders of façade details, helping designers and clients to make informed decisions throughout the various stages of design.
Mammal is an award-winning creative agency and a department of Squire & Partners.
Having collaborated on projects over several years, in 2017 we brought together Mammal’s 13 years of experience delivering brand strategy, campaigns and multi-platform design for both property and consumer clients, with Squire & Partners’ holistic approach to architecture, design and placemaking.
The practice has an in-house Public Relations department which manages all press, events, publications, awards, exhibitions, branding and the busy social life of the office including annual trips abroad.
The practice modelshop create physical concepts for early design ideas, as well as highly detailed models during the design and planning process, their works having been the centrepiece of several public consultations. The modelshop have had works exhibited at high profile London locations including the Royal Academy, Royal Festival Hall and the highly acclaimed Regent Street Windows project.
Squire & Partners employs over 150 architects and architectural assistants, offering experience of a broad range of projects in several different sectors, varying from small bespoke fitouts to large-scale urban masterplans. The emphasis is always focussed on responding to context, sourcing the finest building materials and delivering a meticulously detailed product.
The illustration department at Squire & Partners collaborates with project teams to clearly and beautifully articulate design ideas using conceptual renderings, diagrams and hand-drawn perspectives. Their input to presentations, and ability to artistically convey complex concepts with accuracy and flair, is essential in enabling clients and consultants to understand and assess the creative impetus of design proposals.
Architects and designers are backed by a strong support team, with in-house departments for finance, public relations and document control, as well as team based assistants who create presentations and project materials. A dedicated IT department oversees the complex communications system on which the practice relies each day.
The interior design department at Squire & Partners works with project teams across the office, as well as collaborating with client appointed interior designers, to create bespoke spaces particular to their setting. Their specialist knowledge of materials, furniture and lighting – honed with visits to various design events throughout the year – is an invaluable part of the practice.
The Department Store, Brixton
After 16 years in King’s Cross, Squire & Partners moved to its new home in Brixton. Following our purchase of a dilapidated Edwardian department store in 2015, we entirely reimagined the space allowing the existing fabric and layers of history to inform the new design. Collaborating with craftspeople and furniture makers, the restored and extended building provides an exciting array of creative workspaces for the practice.
Building Information Modelling (BIM)
Squire & Partners sees BIM as a process which is much more than producing drawings and 3D models. BIM supports the practice’s designs and enables them to make informed decisions at all stages of the project timeline.
