Eric Parry Architects – Introduction
Eric Parry Architects is an established and award-winning practice with a growing portfolio of notable work. The practice has gathered together talented individuals from diverse cultural backgrounds and a wide range of experience – as a result EPA operates easily within any frame of reference, whether the Far East or continental Europe.
Eric Parry Architects (EPA) approaches all work with intellectual rigour, and also seeks to integrate the highest level of craftsmanship in all schemes it undertakes. Current projects at EPA include Aldermanbury Square, a new highrise office scheme in the City of London, a significant new wing for the Holburne Museum of Art in Bath, and the restoration and renewal project for the historic St Martin-in-the-Fields Church in Trafalgar Square.
Previous work by EPA includes the home of the London Stock Exchange at 10 Paternoster Square in the City of London, Foundress Court residential complex at Pembroke College, Cambridge University and a new library and music school for Bedford School.
EPA undertakes an unusual range of work, varied in scope and scale. The practice has won numerous awards, including an RIBA Award and AIA Design Excellence Award in 2003 for the design of the office building at 30 Finsbury Square, London, which was also shortlisted for the prestigious Stirling Prize in the same year. The Spa at the Mandarin Oriental, Hyde Park was awarded Best Leisure Design at the FX International Interior Design Awards in 2001 and Foundress Court at Pembroke College, Cambridge University, won an RIBA Award in 1998.
Eric Parry founded the practice in 1983. It is based in Finsbury, London, and employs 54 staff. The architecture practice also has an office in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, where the practice has designed a number of residential schemes. Eric Parry maintains a key involvement in all projects, particularly in their design development stages. He is keenly interested in the bridges between theory, practice, space and society.
