Sidell Architects, established in early 2017 by Ron Sidell after leaving Sidell Gibson*, is informed by some 50 years’ experience in the field. In 1973 he and Paul Gibson – now a consultant to the new company – founded the original Sidell Gibson Partnership. They were, with Giles Downes, Chris Curtis and fellow Partners of the day, responsible for the creation of a broad range of award winning projects in the UK and countries overseas to include Germany, Iran, Spain, Switzerland and Libya.

Whilst the website illustrates the history of projects undertaken by the office since conception, the more recent restructuring of the Practice has enabled the core team to focus on the masterplan and concept design stages of a variety of large, commercial, educational, student and leisure projects working in conjunction with both national and international Practices with whom they have collaborated over many years.

Their commitment is to achieve maximum benefit and added value for clients, end users and the wider community. The team has the creativity and technical expertise to successfully deal with complex design issues, finding innovative solutions to satisfy planning requirements as well as environmental and sensitive site constraints.

*The ‘Sidell Gibson’ name and legacy were acquired by the HLM Group in 2013 and remain in their ownership.
