Established in 1995, Henley Halebrown works in the residential, education, commercial, healthcare, arts and community sectors as well as on adaptive reuse projects. We recognise that buildings form the foundations for society: they are our homes, they provide a setting for the health service, the education of our children and young people, and the arts. Equally they are the instruments of commerce. In each case the architecture is a catalyst for social interaction and personal endeavour. First and foremost, we consider this our responsibility.
For more than 20 years, Henley Halebrown has advocated for a palpably sustainable architecture, one that people understand, engage with and participate in as occupants. Crucially, the practice strives through its work to promote and facilitate a sustainable way of life.
To date, the practice has won nine RIBA awards and has been shortlisted twice for the RIBA Stirling Prize. First, in 2018 for the Chadwick Hall student housing for the University of Roehampton and in 2022 for Hackney New Primary School & 333 Kingsland Road. The scheme was also shortlisted for the RIBA Neave Brown Award for Housing. Chadwick Hall was nominated for the Mies van der Rohe Award EU Prize in 2019 and in 2020 won the Fritz Höger Silver Award for Brick Architecture.
