Stitch is an award winning studio of architects and urban designers. We are experts in housing and regeneration and we are proud to have achieved unanimous planning consent for over 1200 new homes in London, with nearly a third of these homes complete.
But it’s not all about housing numbers. New homes, streets and neighbourhoods are not complete without engaged communities. Planning policy presents opportunities that need imagination to allow the best possible outcomes. And none of this can be real until it is actually built. This is where we choose to operate. We aim to stitch together the needs and aspirations of people, with the intricacies of social, economic and environmental reality, and through design create a public realm that exudes generosity and delight.
Our approach is open and non-prescriptive, but also focused through the lens of experience. We recognize that the context of a project is layered with more than just the opportunities and constraints of site, and that each project has its own story that grows with each telling. We aim to be part of these stories; to listen and to contribute and to inspire, which means we work with residents, allotment gardeners, shop owners, politicians, council officers, the GLA and of course our clients who range from housebuilders and developers to housing associations and local authorities.
This approach gives us a critical sense of perspective which we are determined to make legible in the new homes, streets and neighbourhoods we create. We want every place to tell its own story.
Our projects range from regeneration schemes that transform entire neighbourhoods, to complex infill projects with opportunities to improve local streetscapes. Our focus is on bringing architecture and urbanism together, marrying strategy and detail to create places that ‘sing’, whatever their location or scale. We are equally interested in city scale vision, and the crafting of tiny urban interventions.
Stitch by name, stitch by practice
We pay loving attention to strategy and detail all the way. We are architects and urban designers but there are no divides in the team. At Stitch nothing falls through the gaps. This shows in our work.
Through our commitment to collaboration and partnership working we have had stakeholders on board for every regeneration project in the past 5 years. With our story for every place approach, we win hearts and minds every time.
