Threefold Architects

We believe buildings need to do more for us.

Help us be more productive, healthier, inspired. 

We consider how people will move, think, behave & feel in & about our buildings. 

We partner with people who have a point of view & aspire to achieve remarkable designs.

Founded by friends, we bring together our ideas and our clients’ ambitions to achieve simple, elegant, and distinctive solutions.

This alchemy produces a tailored response that is inventive in how it is organised, materials chosen & meticulously detailed. 

We create buildings which are environmentally, socially, and economically sustainable and are committed to leading the industry to net zero, minimising our impact on the environment and addressing the circular economy.

Our award-winning schemes demonstrate our experience in delivering successful places to visit, work and live.  

We collaborate with forward thinking companies and organisations to deliver original contemporary workplaces which address and respond to flexible & agile working, health and wellbeing. 

We design affordable homes which bring joy and foster social cohesion.

We deliver outstanding projects in sensitive locations including Listed Heritage Buildings, National Parks, and World Heritage Sites. 

Everything we make has a positive footprint.

Equality, Diversity & Inclusion Policy


Threefold are committed to making the architectural profession & built environment more equal, diverse & inclusive and believe that we have a responsibility to enable this. We value people as individuals with diverse opinions, cultures, lifestyles and circumstances and we will not tolerate bigotry, racism, discrimination or harassment within our organisation or amongst any of those with whom we work. We aim to promote and influence EDI within our own organisation, our working partnerships and the buildings we design.

Promoting EDI within our Studio

Threefold have designated practice EDI Champions who meet monthly to:

• to review and update practice policy
• communicate the practice’s commitments & goals to the team
• plan training and CPD in relation to EDI
• consider equality and inclusion in our designs
• seek opportunities to provide work experience, mentoring & apprenticeships.

We regularly review our recruitment adverts, modifying language to be more inclusive, clearly defining skill sets and encouraging applications from a diverse range of candidates and under represented groups. We are explicit about our equal opportunities policy ensuring all staff receive equal treatment regardless of gender, age, disability, gender reassignment, gender identity, marital or civil partner status, pregnancy or maternity, race, colour, nationality, ethnic or national origin, religion or belief, sex or sexual orientation.

We have undertaken a review of our current workforce and have set targets for addressing under representation within our organisation. We are committed to creating an environment in which individual differences and the contributions of our staff are recognised and valued. Our aim is to ensure we have the right culture and processes in place to attract and retain a diverse workforce who will in turn, positively influence the way we work and the buildings we design.

We operate a Grievance Procedure and Anti-Harassment & Bullying Policy to ensure all staff have a recognised channel to raise issues.

Promoting EDI within our Profession

Threefold are signatories of The Mayor’s Fund for London Diversity Pledge which aims to remove the barriers that young Londoners from low income backgrounds face as they set out to build meaningful careers. We are committed to assisting them in their goal to transform outreach, recruitment and progression practices to help employers build a more diverse staff base and create inclusive working cultures.

We are committed to extending our working ethos and sharing our knowledge & skills with disadvantaged young people who are interested in pursuing a career in architecture. We actively pursue these by:

• participating in careers days and creative workshops with local schools • providing work experience at the practice
• acting as mentors for the London Scholarship Programme
• providing a free on-line CV workshop programme

• making financial contributions to professional practice qualifications

Designing Inclusive Environments

London has a rich and vibrant culture and a diverse demographic & socio economic mix making the city a truly exciting place to live and work. We believe that everyone has a right to experience places and spaces that make them feel included, safe, happy and inspired. We ensure that our designs consider all those who will experience them by:

• ensuring our team receive regular training on how to design inclusively
• actively engage with the stakeholders and communities we design for
• working in partnership with specialist community engagement consultants
• working in collaboration with specialist technical compliance experts
• review our designs regularly to comply & exceed inclusive design standards.
