Commercial Projects

Both directors of Rider Stirland Architects have substantial experience running commercial projects with complex requirements and sensitive sites. We provide full architectural services for residential developments, office buildings, and hotels, with a rigorous commercial approach. 

Clear communication is a cornerstone of our business, and we forge strong relationships with our clients by taking time to understand their goals, needs and aspirations. It is from this deep understanding that the best results are produced: beautiful, logical buildings, maximised site values, and client visions realised. 

Every project is addressed on its own merits with a clear focus on high quality deliverable design. Our hands-on approach includes managing key stakeholders throughout the process, offering clear direction and driving the project forward at every stage. We take pleasure in exceeding expectations, and are focused in our goal to provide an exceptional client experience from start to finish. 

For new commissions, we can form and lead project teams, work within an existing consultant structure, or act as executive architect. A friendly, human approach defines the culture of our studio, and we love collaborating with others.

Please get in touch if you would like to explore the opportunity of working together.
