van Heyningen & Haward Architects


van Heyningen and Haward is an award winning design-led practice. Founded in 1983, we are now a partnership, owned and managed by three partners, James McCosh, Meryl Townley and Chris Wilderspin. The partners are closely involved in the design and delivery of challenging and interesting projects where they can really add value. This ethos has continued to inform the practice as they have grown, and underpins their ability to undertake a wide range of complex projects.

We have continued to develop our expertise in sustainable buildings, which has evolved from the practices early interest in low-energy design. Our attitude is that common-sense sustainability makes buildings which are more pleasant to be in, cheap to run and effective over the long term. This involves a holistic attitude to the design, working closely with our clients and the design team, and balancing the diverse range of issues.

We have designed an exemplary zero-carbon visitor centre for the RSPB, but bring this commitment to all our projects to enhance the outcomes for our clients and the users of our buildings. The challenge is bringing this level of performance to the wide range of brief and client aspirations, within normal budgets and timescales
