Langstaff Day finds opportunities for our clients’ in their buildings, sites and estates. We are specialists in brief-building as well as delivering state-of-the-art, sustainable and inclusive buildings.

We create places that are happy, healthy and good for the planet – improving wellbeing through sustainable architecture.

We bring this approach to all our work, in our community, sports & leisure, education and residential projects. Our buildings are well organised, filled with natural light, made sustainably.

We are a RIBA chartered London-based practice, started by Nicholas and Joanna in 2015, with in-house passive house certification.

Each project has its own story formed through considering the PEOPLE, PLACE and PLANET.

PEOPLE: We start with people. Our designs are generated by how we understand people will use the spaces. This can produce solutions that haven’t yet been anticipated. We build in flexibility so the building can adapt and grow, which also gives the project long term value for money.

PLACE: We understand buildings don’t exist in a vacuum, but as part of a connected physical and environmental context. They should have a meaningful relationship with the spaces between them and their surroundings. This doesn’t mean the architecture needs to blend in – it can be respectful as well as bold and brave.

PLANET: We aim to create responsible buildings.  Embedded within all our designs is the ambition to make genuinely sustainable, accessible and inclusive projects, and we have in-house expertise to achieve this.
