Stitch is an award-winning studio of architects and urban designers established in 2012. We are experts in housing and regeneration and we have achieved unanimous planning consent for over 1200 new homes in London, with nearly 300 of these homes now complete and hundreds more under construction.
But it’s not all about housing numbers. We have created streets and squares and new neighbourhoods, and have worked with residents, allotment gardeners, shop owners, politicians and council officers. Our clients are from the public and private sector ranging from developers and housing associations to the GLA and council backed housing companies.
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 physical 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. 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.
Here’s a film we made about how we see things.
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.
