Feilden Fowles

Fergus Feilden and Edmund Fowles are the directors of Feilden Fowles, a highly recognised London-based practice known for their sustainable and characterful public and cultural buildings. 

In this episode, Fergus, Edmund and I discussed:
  • The importance of competitions to help develop their portfolio, studio culture, and connections with potential clients.
  • How they were able to curate their website to appeal to cultural, public and educational sector clients–despite having little built work in those areas in the early years of the practice.
  • The benefit of designing a unique studio space that represents their practice and values as architects, as well as a place to host parties and lunches to build better client relationships.
  • The importance of investing early in the practice’s graphic design and brand identity so that it would beconsistent across every touch point and build trust in their brand.
  • How they discovered that their low-tech approach to sustainable design could become a key point of difference for their practice.
