Championing #RetroFirst

Stanton Williams has joined the Architects’ Journal #RetroFirst campaign, endorsing legal reform to stimulate the reuse of existing buildings.

Principal Director Patrick Richard said: ‘Calling for pressing reforms in tax, policy and procurement in order to encourage the responsible reuse and reimagining of existing fabric is an important step in fostering regenerative practices and imaginative thinking in order to mitigate the climate crisis.’

‘As a practice we are known for our work with existing buildings, the most sustainable way to create new spaces.Reusing and rethinking space for us is the basis of a wider philosophy – it is about considering future users and scenarios, building in flexibility and adaptability – both spatial and social, and responsibly using the resources and opportunities we are presented with as architects.’
