About Tom Russell Architects



1 (Bristol)


Any to £1m

We are a small architectural practice engaged in a broad portfolio of work including projects in higher education, housing, urban design, commercial buildings and smaller scale residential projects.

The practice draws on the wide experience of its two senior members both of whom have worked in key positions in nationally and internationally respected practices.

Social and environmental sustainability is at the core of our approach and is re-enforced by our teaching and research activities

Together we have developed a reputation for imaginative and ambitious designs within the constraints of existing buildings and sensitive sites. We have recently won the international Europan 9 competition for the Milton Keynes Western Expansion area and are now the architects for the design of a pioneering low carbon Eco-Village in Wales.

Our practice is informed by our strong engagement with teaching and research.
