Bisset Adams has been part of the Clerkenwell scene since 1994. In the past few years the company has grown to what is now a practice of 60 architects, interior designers and graphic designers.
'We are still leading innovators in library design, working on the new Marylebone Library in Westminster, as well as City of York Archives in the York Explore central library.
'The growth in the business has finally prompted us to make the decision to vacate our characterful premises in St James’s Walk and we are delighted to announce we are able to buy our own studio and stay in the Clerkenwell area. Our new larger studio in Central Street EC1 will allow the whole team to work together in a more collaborative work environment.'
The new studio is BREEAM Excellent rated, allowing the team to pursue its commitment to sustainable design. This move signals a change in the company, with the creation of a new brand identity in recognition of this change and growth.
In 2015 company founder Roger Adams will retire and fellow directors Iain Johnston and Sarah Godowski will be taking the company forward into a confident future. The move will take place at the end of July 2014.
