At Grimshaw we often apply Industrial Design principles when designing our buildings in order to bring value for our clients through economies of scale and off-site fabrication techniques. This approach originated with Sir Nicholas Grimshaw's first project, and in this context we see architecture and industrial design as inseparable disciplines.
We combine this approach with a passion for materials and contemporary manufacturing processes to bring refinement and a sense of craft to our work.
Our close relationship with industry and our intimate knowledge of user-needs means that we also often collaborate with fabricators and suppliers to develop commercially successful products for a wider market than a specific building.
Whether designing a building system or a standalone component the emphasis is the same – to use technology and ingenuity to improve on what has gone before.
