Commercial, creative delivery

Box Architects create spaces for people to work, live and play. We are focused on commercial, creative delivery and operate from offices in London and Leeds.

We provide a client-centric service, driven by a focus on commercial and creative balance. We develop creative ideas to drive commercial opportunities for developments, design buildings that work and meticulously support delivery to ensure planning is achieved and projects are delivered. We aim to work with our clients long-term, understanding their businesses and their commercial imperatives, so we can support them in achieving their goals.

Projects are about people and how they work, live and play. Designing the VISA Innovation Centre or inspiring new offices for Centrica provide different challenges to the London’s Cumberland Hotel commercial project, a roll-out of swimming pool projects with Total Swimming or retirement villages with McCarthy & Stone. But each project will have a balance of the commercial and the creative.

Founder and CEO Graham Place said: “We provide design excellence to our clients balanced with an understanding of commercial constraints, practicality and deliverability. We take time to understand our clients’ goals through an enquiring mentality set against a flexibility of approach. We recognise that each project, irrespective of size, represents an investment in time and capital expenditure by everyone involved in the project; we take this responsibility seriously and treat each project as an opportunity to deliver commercial and creative excellence.”
