MoreySmith

Philosophy

MoreySmith is an architectural design practice based in Central London. Founded in 1993 by Linda Morey-Burrows, the practice has designed some of the world’s most innovative workspaces including international headquarters for blue chip, FTSE 100 companies and globally recognised brands.

The practice, which has an extensive portfolio of commercial workplace, development, leisure and residential projects, offers a range of services including architectural design, interior and exterior refurbishment, interior design and branding to both occupiers and developers.

MoreySmith's particular strength lies in an ability to conceive ideas, which transforms spaces in line with each client's objectives, and to develop the concepts in every element and detail.

The practice understands the changing ways in which people work today and creates spaces that are appropriate to their needs while also expressing the values of a brand via the space that it creates. It is particularly skilled at working with old stock and heritage buildings to create a contemporary and appropriate feeling, and in juxtaposing the grandeur of large spaces with the intimacy of smaller ones. 

'Linda's achievement has been to lead a design studio committed to addressing the psychological needs of a workplace alongside physical and operational needs. Its schemes understand intrinsically that in an era of digital technology, the office floor has become a social landscape for interaction. The ability to create exceptional landscapes of this type within some brutal and distinctly uncompromising building shells is what gives MoreySmith its architectural credence.'
