Penoyre & Prasad, the award-winning architecture firm known for designing some of the U.K.’s most sustainable educational, healthcare, residential, and cultural buildings, has joined global design firm Perkins&Will, named one of the world’s most innovative companies in architecture.
The merger, which grew out of the firms’ common environmental and social concerns, goals, and design philosophies, benefits both practices while enhancing design services for clients worldwide.
“There are so many shared values between our firms that this partnership felt natural to us. We’re looking forward to using our combined capacity to deliver even better results for our clients, more efficiently,” says Sunand Prasad, who co-founded Penoyre & Prasad in 1988.
Ian Goodfellow, a partner at Penoyre & Prasad, elaborates: “The global resources provided by Perkins&Will mean that we can increase our reach and fulfill our ambition to design in a more holistic way, with wider impact. This is particularly important given the climate emergency the world is facing.”
