For nearly 50 years PRP has challenged current theory and practice in the design of housing and communities in pursuit of excellence.
Central to our approach is a deep understanding of 'home and place': how people live individually, in groups and in communities. We combine this with a rigour that reflects our knowledge of how buildings are crafted to create a built environment that is both attractive and convivial whilst economical and efficient.
Our aim with each new project is to bring together our collective depth of experience and knowledge of building typologies with a fresh and innovative response to specific site and environment.
We work in groups which focus on specific sectors. This structure is based on the concept Centres of Excellence each with a small team of designers who have the freedom to innovate, rather than reinvent, from a platform of knowledge and experience.
PRP's Design Director, Jeff Brooks, provides design leadership across the practice, and engages with the groups through interactive design workshops and reviews to ensure the highest quality and creativity at all stages in the process.
Every project is unique.
However, a clear design philosophy underpins all of aspects of PRP's design:
We seek to challenge, create and innovate through the design process.
