WAUGH THISTLETON ARCHITECTS

CORPORATE MEMBERS

Waugh Thistleton Architects are a London based practice with an international reputation for leadership in the use of sustainable materials.

Waugh Thistleton practice an architecture that has ethos at its core. We strive to leave a positive imprint on our planet, a regenerative architecture that is beautiful, useful, lasting and adaptable.

Our architecture acknowledges its effect on our environment and looks for every opportunity to mitigate that impact. A simple architecture without unnecessary excess that celebrates place, space, light and material and the physics of building.

We look to passive solutions for the challenges of our climate. We deliver elegant solutions to complex spatial and structural issues and create innovative, efficient and beautiful buildings that embody values of sustainability and social value through three principal ideas: innovation, human experience and contextual response.

Over the last 20 years we have delivered a diverse range of buildings across the globe and lectured widely on the use of engineered timber, sustainable construction and the future of architecture.

  • FOOTPRINT is the place to showcase how we can build sustainable developments and reduce the carbon footprint of building projects. In tackling the climate crisis, these are the conversations we need to be having.
    Peter Kyle
    MP for Hove, Shadow Minister for Justice
  • Despite the global impact of COVID-19 the UK property industry is resilient. FOOTPRINT will provide a forum for everyone to create a deliverable agenda for sustainable growth in the UK property market.
    Francis Hilton
    Pelican Developments
  • The construction sector has a huge role to play in enabling Local Authorities to meet ambitious carbon zero targets. I believe that FOOTPRINT will be the event that supports the creative discussions and working relationships required to achieve Zero Carbon living.
    Duncan Baker-Brown
    Architect, Lecturer at University of Brighton & Campaigner for Circular Economy
  • At last an event that addresses the key issues facing design, construction and development in the UK. The rich mix of consultants, clients, stakeholders and government together with the great location will make Footprint a huge success.
    Paul Monaghan Director of Allford Hall Monaghan Morris Architects
    Liverpool City Region Design Champion and founding member of Architects Declare
  • The idea of the jobs fair on the last day is brilliant. It's exactly what school and university leavers need, and as a CDO, I realise that finding high calibre candidates to work for your organisation is a hugely time absorbing process.
    Adam Brockley
    Founder of Scape Student Living
  • As we move to create the ‘new normal’ post Covid, we have an unprecedented opportunity to re-write the rules around our environmental impact on the planet, this conference does exactly that.
    Gavin Stewart
    Executive Director Brighton & Hove Economic Partnership
  • FOOTPRINT is a hugely exciting opportunity to address the climate emergency which we all face as global citizens.
    James Blakey
    Planning Director Moda Living
  • FOOTPRINT has been set up to answer a need in the property market. We have all traipsed off to the South of France previously to meet up and discuss property issues. This is no longer a responsible action given the carbon footprint of getting there. Combined with the exit of Britain from the EU, we, in the UK market need to meet and discuss our national and international concerns. Footprint is set up to permit us to do this in an accessible, affordable and responsible way
