Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios

Broadcasting Tower, Leeds

Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios (also known as FCBStudios) is a British architectural design firm, established in 1978, headquartered in Bath[1] and London with offices in Belfast and Manchester. The firm is known for use of solar design and sustainable design.

In 2008, Accordia, which was also designed by Alison Brooks Architects and Maccreanor Lavington, became the first housing development to win the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) Stirling Prize.


The company was formed in 1978 by architects Richard Feilden (1950–2005) and Peter Clegg, operating from small premises in Bath, Somerset. The company designed and constructed low-energy houses.[2] Over the next two decades the company won awards for a number of school design projects and gained "a formidable reputation in the education sector".[2] With over 100 staff the firm developed an "unusually democratic" way of operating.[2]

Feilden was accidentally killed by a falling tree in 2005[2] and the practice continued under Peter Clegg and senior partner Keith Bradley.[3]

In 2008 the practice won the RIBA Stirling Prize, with fellow designers Alison Brooks Architects and Macreanor Lavington, for their Cambridge high-density housing development, Accordia. Bradley picked up a cheque for £20,000.[3]
