Liam Russell Architects (LRA) is an award-winning RIBA Chartered Architects practice with an excellent track record in taking concepts through the planning process to completion, creating beautiful, inspiring and successful outcomes for our clients. LRA brings a fresh, ethical approach to architecture and is passionate about design.
The practice is increasingly involved in regeneration in all its forms – from the smallest to the largest projects, from the more subtle and discreet to the most overt and encompassing – no matter what the context, the same desire pervades; to leave a positive, lasting legacy that is timeless and joyful. Reinvigorating and breathing life into areas, whilst respecting the local environment, supporting sustainability, cultural diversity and the people that inhabit and use those spaces. Sustainability is integral to what we do and as members of the AECB (Association for Environment Conscious Building) we encourage all our clients to engage in this way of thinking.
We are amongst the 13.5% of practices working with BIM, (Building Information Modeling) an intelligent 3D model-based process that gives architecture, engineering, and construction professionals the insight and tools to more efficiently plan, design, construct, and manage buildings and infrastructure, putting us at the vanguard of a new digital construction era. The UK government’s implementation of BIM has ambitions for the UK to become the world leaders.
Because we are fortunate enough to work with major financial institutions such as La Salle and the HSBC Pension Fund, large developers such as Inland Homes, charities, the public sector, housing associations and private residential clients, LRA has an insight into the demands of a cross-sector client base and to working with a wide range of budgets.
Why - We Believe in a better, sustainable future. We disrupt the assumptions of the present.
