Burrell Foley Fischer LLP is an award winning, design led architectural practice with a recognised commitment to achieving high quality in the built environment. We are recognised as one of the leading practices specialising in buildings for cinema, media and the performing arts, together with urban design, residential, commercial and educational design and the adaptation and restoration of historic buildings. 

Extensive experience has been gained through working closely with clients from different sectors for more than three decades, and working collaborations with residents and young people is another recognised strength and area of experience and expertise within the practice.

We have designed buildings for Clients across the public, private and subsidised sectors including concert halls, theatres, cinemas, media centres, galleries and performing arts buildings. We have a recognised track record in the design and construction of housing, education and commercial buildings, and urban design studies. 



We have undertaken new build, refurbishment and building conservation commissions and have extensive experience and knowledge of working with existing building stock and large, problematic estates. The practice has won many awards for its projects, not only for design quality, but also for innovation and how projects have responded to the Client’s brief, the delivery of the project and the finished product.

We adopt a rigorous approach to our work, developed through years of experience working alongside clients with high aspirations, often on difficult sites within tightly controlled budgets. Our success has been achieved by gaining a thorough understanding of each individual client’s needs, an appreciation of the specific drivers of each project, a detailed knowledge of the building type, a disciplined and intellectual analysis of the context and by producing imaginative responses and creative solutions.  

The buildings designed by the practice stand the test of time and are being used and enjoyed by large numbers of people every single day, whether as places to live, to work, to learn, to perform, to collaborate or simply to socialise and relax.
