New London Architecture



Purcell is a specialist architectural practice working predominantly on bespoke architectural projects for end user clients. We aim to create places of high architectural quality, which delight their users, are economic to build, and are delivered to meet our clients timescales and budgets. We also want to provide buildings which are inclusive and accessible to all on the same basis but without this being obvious.

We work as one family of many experts: architects, designers, heritage leaders and specialist consultants. Ideally placed in regions covering the UK and in Asia Pacific, we undertake projects across eight core sectors.

Clients come to us when they need to make sense of their project. These complex scenarios often involve sensitive sites, listed buildings and admired places. We guide their transformation, and help clients to build new structures and create new spaces through bespoke design.

For seven decades, we have been making sure that our clients’ buildings are designed for use today and for future generations.

Purcell is a partnership of architects, designers and heritage consultants. The practice provides a full architectural service, encompassing condition surveys, conservation management plans, maintenance schedules and specialist historic buildings advice. We undertake project work from inception through development of the brief, concept design, detailed design, preparation of production information, contract administration and inspection of work on site. We are expert at working in intricate urban centres, arresting rural landscapes and the historic built environment. From St. Paul’s Cathedral to a sustainable new home for a private client, whether we’re breathing new life into a historic place or building for the future, design vision, technical expertise, attention to detail and embedded sustainability are the hallmarks of our approach.

The main services that we provide are:

  • Architecture
  • Building Surveying
  • Conservation
  • Funding Advice
  • Heritage Consultancy
  • Masterplanning
