Wright & Wright Architects
An award-winning practice based in London, Wright & Wright Architects has a particular interest in working with historic buildings and enjoy researching the meaning and evolution of sites over time. Its buildings are always a considered response to context, adding to and enriching the historical continuum. As the latest chapter in the development of St John’s College, the new Library and Study Centre adds to the existing ensemble of buildings and landscapes. This requires acute sensitivity shaped by an intimate understanding of the site and its history.
Wright & Wright has excellent relationships with heritage bodies such as Historic England, as well as local planning authorities. With a reputation for imaginative responses to significant historic settings, the practice excels in creating contemporary yet sensitive architecture for museums, libraries, archives and educational institutions. Its list of distinguished clients includes St John’s College, Oxford, the V&A, the Royal College of Art, the National Gallery and Lambeth Palace. Recent projects include a new library for Magdalen College, Oxford, which was opened by HRH The Duke of Cambridge. Wright & Wright’s new Library and Archive for the Church of England at Lambeth Palace is due to be completed in 2020.
