Edward Cullinan Architects
Edward Cullinan Architects is committed to producing high quality architecture that fulfils the needs of the client, the user and the wider community. In every project, we strive to develop appropriate design solutions which respond positively to the local physical and cultural conditions, and which are respectful of the earth’s natural resources as well as those of cost and time.
Since 1965 when Edward Cullinan set up the practice, we have been designing carefully composed buildings and spaces, with a continuing focus on energy conservation and sustainability. We enjoy engaging with our clients to develop the brief and design ideas. We promote consultation with and participation by the users as an essential part of the design process. We welcome new challenges arising from changing contexts and new knowledge, always building upon our existing broad base of experience. We have worked successfully in many sectors, including health, education, residential, commercial and public buildings, and on master planning and mixed use urban regeneration projects.
As a practice, we have developed our unique co-operative structure over time into a highly efficient, effective, lean and flexible organisation. We work in a single studio to maximise personal and cross-project knowledge exchange and support.
As architects, we believe that the power of a good building, a set of buildings or a masterplan lies in its understanding of the present for the benefit of an unknown future, providing a spatial framework for learning, playing, working and living. Recent significant projects can be characterised by the Singapore Management University campus master plan and the Centre for Mathematical Sciences University of Cambridge in United Kingdom, which had been completed in 2003 and 2006 respectively.
