About

Member Since: 2014

Member Offices: Hong Kong, London

Farrells are considered to be the UKs leading architect planners with offices in London, Hong Kong and Shanghai. For forty years the practice has shaped the debate on urban design and believes passionately in the creation of the civic realm and the vital spaces in between buildings.

For over 30 years Farrells have been at the forefront of cutting edge thinking on sustainability. Their approach to masterplanning, architecture and design is to create high quality places and buildings that are future proof environmentally, economically, socially and culturally.

Their projects are based on core principles of using resources effectively (including existing buildings where appropriate), enhancing biodiversity, supporting communities, creating healthy environments, minimizing pollution and managing the implementation process.
