Witherford Watson Mann

Witherford Watson Mann Architects was founded in 2001, bringing together the significant experience of its three directors in cultural buildings, public spaces and urban design. The studio works openly with progressive clients and focuses on the values and culture of architecture, as well as the practicality of how they are built. It works across many scales, from post-industrial landscapes and public buildings to city housing. The studio is renowned for its design abilities, and won the 2013 RIBA Stirling Prize for Astley Castle, a ruined castle that it transformed into a contemporary dwelling, which was the first domestic building to win the prize. Its work has been exhibited throughout Europe, at the Sao Paulo International Biennale, the Center for Architecture in New York and at the 2008 Biennale di Venezia, British Pavilion.
