ABOUT US

OVERVIEW

Established in 1962 by Architect Anthony Grimshaw, the practice is now run by his daughters Rebecca Grimshaw, Architect and Rachel Grimshaw, Interior Designer.

Anthony Grimshaw Associates LLP is an RIBA Chartered practice, offering full architectural service from inception to completion, employing Architects Accredited in Building Conservation.

The practice undertakes a wide range of work, including both conservation contracts and new build, together with interiors and the design of furniture and fittings.

We believe it is equally important to balance knowledge and experience of repairing old buildings with skill in creative design. Our work has often involved new designs either within or alongside historic buildings. The challenge is always to contribute to the setting with both sensitivity and style, but without pastiche.
