Many of their projects are within schemes involving major urban regeneration, refurbishment of historic buildings or low energy designs.

Established as a design-led studio 40 years ago the practice has remained true to its core values of humanity and sustainability during a period of steady growth to over 100 strong today. As one of the first architectural practices to form an employee owned trust Jestico + Whiles has always been at the forefront of working practice innovation and employee well-being.

Their creative hub is based in Sutton Yard, the heart of , one of London’s most vibrant, characterful, unique and well-connected neighbourhoods. This workplace is designed to promote collaborative and innovative ways of working in a flexible and inspiring grouping of studios which envelope a shared communal space – our town square. The building hosting the practice is a light-filled and elegant upgrade of a concrete and brick 1960s office building.

The existing plan form, with three distinct wings centred around an open central space, enabled the arrangement of three working studios, with a flexible ‘town square’ at their heart used for meeting, eating, collaborating and presenting, as well as for hosting events. The kitchen area together with a ‘working wall’ that accommodates a range of uses, and multiple touchdown areas, encourages more interaction amongst the team.

Their headquarter is a flexible workplace transformed into a showcase of their shared vision for the future, which relies on collaboration, flexibility, and a desire to promote excellent design and an inspirational working life.

This are the same basis on which we are building our idea of company and services: we want to promote excellent design throughout educational tours while giving the chance to student and companies to be inspired by breaking-through architects, learning their architecture philosophy and experiencing architecture.

The educational architecture and design tour is free thanks to our valuable partner Lago, which designs and produces modular furniture entirely “Made in Italy” to offer a range of furnishings suitable not only for rooms in the home, but also for public spaces such as hotels, restaurants, shops and workplaces.
