Currently in our fourth generation, EPR Architects has over 70 years experience in masterplanning, architecture and interior design. The following are some of the projects that have shaped our practice.
A combination of 4-storey terraces and towers recognised by The Civic Trust as a model for redevelopment.
Southbank Television Centre, Southwark, 1973
Part of the now iconic South Bank Cultural Centre, the 1-hectare island site provided public pedestrian access to the river frontage which was later extended to form the river walkway between Waterloo and Blackfriars bridges.
Victoria Street, Victoria, 1975
A contemporary restatement of the urban form established by Eastbourne Terrace. The Piazza, now one of London’s most successful open spaces, revealed for the first time the façade of Westminster Cathedral. From this time, Victoria emerged as a major office location.
1000 Aztec West, Bristol, 1984
North of Bristol, the Aztec West Business Park provided the perfect setting for this simple but dramatic low rise building.
Victoria Plaza, Victoria, 1984
The first major office development built over a British Rail terminus. It proved the flexibility of steel construction when Soloman Brothers were able to remove a two storey wing, sub-dividing one of the atria to create one of London’s largest dealing rooms.
Temple Mills Market, Leyton, 1989
A relocation of the Spitalfields fruit and vegetable market with a 36 metre span structure housing all 168 stalls under one roof.
Eland House, Victoria, 1996
The first building in the country to use combined heat and power (CHP) technology. The building’s geometry was a response to the site’s varying surroundings, resulting in a large rectangular block set around an inner atrium.
ABN Amro, Bishopsgate, 1996
Shortlisted for the Royal Fine Arts Commission’s Twenty Best Buildings of the Year, this striking building formed the gateway into the new development around Spitalfields Market. The angled façades guide the pedestrian away from the main thoroughfare into the area beyond.
Greenwich Millenium Village, Greenwich, 2000
Working in collaboration with Ralph Erksine on this multi-award winning scheme, we developed the vision of the original masterplan, which delivered contemporary design and pioneering sustainability standards.
Expo ’98, Lisbon, 2001
An international competition-winning design for Lisboa’s headquarters and an integral feature in the World Fair. The landmark building set the standard of quality for Lisbon’s future office market, bringing values such as flexibility, low energy and environmental issues.
Parliament View, Lambeth, 2001
This distinctive building sits in the heart of the Lambeth Palace Conservation Area. Our design provided a high quality residential development that optimised views across the River Thames to the Houses of Parliament, whilst responding to the diverse architectural styles of its immediate neighbours.
Royal College of Nursing, Cavendish Square, 2003
Our refurbishment of the Grade II Listed building and modernisation of the offices, teaching areas and library were essential for the Royal College of Nursing to continue using these premises as their main headquarters.
Cardinal Place, Victoria, 2006
This multi-award winning mixed-use development comprises two large office buildings linked with ground floor retail and a rooftop garden. The masterplan built on our previous design for the adjacent Ashdown House, creating a retail-lead thoroughfare between Victoria Station and Cathedral Plaza.
Qube, Fitzrovia, 2007
Our design for this office-lead develoment on Tottenham Court Road harnessed light across the floorplates to create a spacious workplace. The stepping facades allowed the design to break free from the conventional ‘glass box’ with crisp vertical brise soleil creating a random, brightly articulated façade.
The Killanin Stand, Galway, 2007
Our replacement stand for ‘The People’s Racecourse’ accurately reflects the course's inclusive philosophy, enabling people to flow freely around the different parts of the enclosure. From the start, the project was carefully scheduled so that racing could continue without interruption while the works were undertaken.
York House, Marble Arch, 2007
Our design for this mixed-use development referenced the proportions of the traditional Georgian town houses in the area, and integrated itself sensitively into the existing context with confidence and individuality.
Coworth House, Berkshire, 2007
This original Palladian-style Manor House and estate were extensively restored into a luxurious and energy-efficient hotel and spa. We placed sustainability at the heart of our design, restoring the whole estate to its former glory and implementing a quintessentially English interior throughout.
Bernard Weatherill House, Croydon, 2012
A catalyst for the wider regeneration of Croydon’s Town centre, this new administrative headquarters building created an open and transparent environment for the public to engage with the Council, transforming their traditional office space into a thriving civic centre and a proud representation of the local community.
One John Street, Brighton, 2012
Built on a steep, elevated urban site with the historic Brighton Pavilion as its backdrop, we created a vibrant highly articulated building that offers American Express a sustainable and future-proofed working environment.
Rosewood London, Holborn, 2014
Our multi-award winning collaboration with signature designers Tony Chi and Martin Brudnizki offers ultra-luxury with a timeless sense of place and style. The Grand Manor House Wing – the most lavish of the suites – is notably one of the only suites in the world with its own postcode.
24 Savile Row, Mayfair, 2015
Winner of the WAN Façade Award, this building is a piece of art; it is a tribute to Savile Row’s tailoring heritage, clad in 10,000 hand-glazed ceramic tiles and positioned on a decorative sand-cast plinth.
The Ram Quarter, Wandsworth, currently on site.
Our masterplan will transform an industrial island site into a series of interlinked public urban spaces with the retained heritage buildings providing a unique character to the development and the River Wandle as a focal point for Wandsworth.
