Project Office Architecture


The Centre

Project Office is an architecture consultancy that provides a full architectural service. We are a collaboration of staff and students concerned with ethical, social, and resilient architectural design and research. Simon Warren and Craig Stott oversee the team. Simon is a registered Architect with twenty-five years of experience in delivering projects. Craig originally trained as a structural engineer before diversifying into architecture. With full Professional Indemnity Insurance, Project Office is able to oversee any site works as project architects.

We specialise in:

  • using architecture ethically
  • the imperative of environmentally resilient closed loop design
  • participatory design with students and collaborators
  • working with stakeholders who have no viable alternative to realise their projects
  • advocating an inspiring experience for all collaborators
  • having fun

Recent Projects

  • Fareshare is a food distribution charity that required an office space creating within their distribution warehouse. For a budget of just £1,500, Project Office designed the space, sourced materials and built an ingenious solution that wholly fulfilled the client brief.
  • Project Office provided New Wortley Community Centre with a design proposal that enabled them to obtain £15,000 of development funding. This was used to develop a successful Big Lottery funding application resulting in a £65,000 grant to further the design and submit a planning application. The project is expected to start on site in April 2015 with a construction value of £350,000. Project Office was instrumental in this achievement and is acting as project architects for the build.
