The exceptionally rigorous and rational Rose building has recently been awarded the LABC Award for Design Quality in B&NES along with being highly commended for Building Quality. This project represents outstanding value for money at less than £1300/ m2 construction cost. It was designed and delivered in less than a year with a construction period of 7 months. The Cross Laminated Timber structure and cantilevered beams are optimised to reduce wastage and support the suspended steel stair inspired by South Korean artist Do Ho Suh.
Feilden Fowles are excited to announce that the The Lee Centre in Bath has been nominated as a Civic Trust Award Regional Finalist. We look forward to hearing the verdict from the National Panel if the building is successful in achieving a Civic Trust Award, Commendation or Community Recognition at a National / International Level.
This unique exhibition at the Jewish Museum, New York designed by Feilden Fowles in collaboration with A Practice for Everyday Life, opens its doors to the public today. This is the first exhibition to explore the ideas, innovations, and influence of the legendary cosmetics entrepreneur Helena Rubinstein (1872 – 1965). Madame (as she was universally known) helped break down the status quo of taste by blurring boundaries between commerce, art, fashion, beauty, and design. Through 200 objects Beauty Is Power reveals how Rubinstein’s unique style and pioneering approaches to business challenged conservative taste and heralded a modern notion of beauty, democratized and accessible to all.
Feilden Fowles were delighted to be invited to present at the Multistory Guest Lecture series at Canterbury School of Architecture. Last nights talk was a great success with warm feedback from the students and tutors. Fergus & Edmund talked about the inception of the practice from their early projects through to recent completed education buildings, describing how their values and approach have shaped past buildings and define new opportunities in Education and the Arts.
Other speakers lined up to appear in the series include 6a Architects, David Greene of Archigram and Lacation & Vassal.

Feilden Fowles most recently completed education building was opened today by HRH the Countess of Wessex. The new building forms the academic hub of the school and provides six classrooms and a large central learning resource space, together with learning support and office accommodation. The Headmaster, Richard Fenwick, shared his vision for this fantastic new resource: “We are very excited about this building because, as well as being an architectural and constructional triumph, we believe it makes a clear and strategic statement about the future of education. Its semi-open-plan design allows pupils to learn with an increasing amount of independence, breaking out of the classroom and utilising the technological resources that they have, literally at their fingertips. This will enable them to become equipped for the future as confident, independent and inter-dependent learners”.
