Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios is a British architectural design firm, established in 1978, headquartered in Bath[1] and London with offices in Belfast and Manchester. The studio was joint-winner of the Stirling Prize in 2008, and is known for use of solar design and sustainable design.


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]
