Hodder + Partners is the incorporated continuation of Hodder Associates, founded in 1983 by practice Principal Stephen Hodder. The practice offers Architectural services across all sectors, including Interior Design, Masterplanning and Urban Design.
We have established a proven track record in creating high quality, innovative, sustainable design solutions across a range of sectors, and have a particular interest in residential, commercial and higher education buildings.
In 1992 it received the Royal Fine Art Commission / Sunday Times ‘Building of the Year’ Award for Colne Swimming Pool in Lancashire. This resulted in the appointment to extend Arne Jacobsen’s Grade I listed St Catherine’s College, Oxford, a client relationship which has now extended for some 20 years, culminating with the £8.7m Phase II extension, which has now received 5 awards. In 1996, the practice received the inaugural Stirling Prize, for the Centenary Building, University of Salford. It has since won over 40 major national awards.
The practice has realised significant projects in the leisure, cultural, higher education, residential and commercial sectors, and is committed to producing thoughtful and sensitive solutions within commercial constraints.
We recognise that the high value of good design in the built environment places responsibility on us as architects to understand and engage with the client and end users who are at the core of and essential to the process.
