Our approach is based on collaboration, context and creativity.

The practice and its personnel have a proven track record in consistently designing and delivering high quality buildings.

We offer a wealth of innovation, design and technical ability, drawing on experience from Foster and Partners and Faulkner Browns and success gained from designing and delivering major projects such as the £25m Echo 24 apartments in Sunderland prior to the creation of Fitz Architects.

At Fitz Architects we pride ourselves in providing a complete and dedicated service to our client’s project design philosophy driven entirely by the needs of our clients.
