Toby Fletcher and Ian Crane met as contemporaries at the Brighton School of Architecture. In these formative years of studying, under the careful stewardship of tutors such as David Robson, Stephen Proctor and Andrew Matthews a common design appreciation developed. Over the next decade, in between several architectural grand tours to Europe together, Toby and Ian become Associates at leading architectural practices, Scott Brown Rigg and PRP, in London.
Fletcher Crane Architects was established in 2010 in Kingston Upon Thames. We are a RIBA award winning practice; passionate about innovative, crafted and thoughtful architecture. Design skill, communication, organisation and deliverability are key components of our service. We design for delight and longevity, implementing an architecture that is not rooted to a particular moment but one that transcends fashions. We are intuitive, enthusiastic and energetic designers and thrive on intensive dialogue. We adopt an open, engaging and collaborative approach to the design and construction process. Using a variety of mediums to communicate ideas quickly and effectively, we develop clients' briefs clearly and carefully to enable projects to exceed expectations. Our rigorous design process emphasises the importance of evolving strong narratives; notions that are evident from conception and developed through to completion.
Today the practice is fortunate to be connected with a strong network of consultants and collaborators, providing strength and depth to a growing professional service. We strive to create thoughtful, surprising and beautiful architecture whilst maintaining commercial awareness; a quality necessary in maximising value for our private, public and developer clients. Our portfolio consists of a diverse project range, varying in typology and scale. With every commission we draw upon our experience, applying our principles and philosophies to each unique situation.
