Page\Park is an award-winning architectural practice undertaking work across the UK from our studio offices in Glasgow and Leeds. We are an Employee Owned Business reflecting our culture of sharing ownership and responsibility across all that we do.
Founded in 1981, Page\Park Architects has grown from a small Glasgow-based partnership to a busy employee owned practice of thirty-five staff with offices in Glasgow and Leeds. Over the years, we have earned a reputation for excellence in design and delivery across the UK, providing responsive solutions rooted in the needs and experience of local users and communities. We have an unwavering practice ethos: of being a creative community, united by a common purpose to design creatively, with integrity, and to make a difference.
We have never delivered two buildings the same, nor presumed that a solution for one client will be appropriate for another. We are defined by a determination to challenge and persist, until we uncover the right answers for our clients.
40 Years of Page\Park
The 40th anniversary of our practice falls in November of this year.
To celebrate this journey we will be reflecting over the rest of the year on the many elements that brought us here. We will be offering an insight into the workings of our practice: the people, our collaborators, past projects and our design process. We hope you enjoy our collection of stories and will celebrate 40 years with us over the remainder of 2021, virtually of course.
Thank you to all who have contributed to our journey since 1981.
What we do
Between our studios in Glasgow and Leeds, we have a diverse portfolio of projects in new and established settings. We have won awards for new-build projects in a variety of sectors; such as housing, healthcare, the arts, and higher education. Working in existing historic settings is where we thrive most. We possess the experience and specialist expertise that has enabled us to deliver transformational change to buildings and organisations, overcoming complex problems along the way. This expertise is underpinned by a strong foundation of technical knowledge and conservation accredited practitioners, enhanced by a new generation of young architects and researchers who are developing our philosophy and approach to historic buildings for the 21st century.
How we think
Changes are taking place in the way we work. Innovation and technology are empowering the individual architect, shaping each of our passions and specialisms. In this environment, each employee has a unique voice, which taken as a collective represent our body of thinking and experience. We value these voices, understanding that the world we are shaping is not the preserve of the few, but the contribution of us all.
Outreach and engagement
Page\Park has a long-term commitment to education and social engagement. We are actively engaged with the Post-Graduate and Conservation Masters Programmes at Strathclyde University, in addition to ongoing teaching relationships with KU Leuven University in Belgium, the Glasgow School of Art, and the University of Northumbria.
