Most of our work comes from clients we have worked with in the past. Just as important to us are the long-term relationships we build with the people who work with us. Many colleagues continue working with us throughout their education, or return to the practice after their studies.

Every project starts with fresh thinking, leading to a solution that is tailor-made to both site and user. Design is typically undertaken by a small, close-knit team; the team that starts a project sees it through to completion, thus providing continuity throughout. We always consider the built environment as a totality and to apply a truly integrated approach to responsible design.

Studio Egret West
Studio Egret West was established in November 2004 by Christophe Egret and David West with a shared vision: to offer strategy with architectural specificity; and specificity within an overall strategy.

We believe that the way forward is the osmosis between planning and architecture. Studio Egret West is just this. We follow no formula and no recipe. Not just architecture by architects and not just planning by planners.
