Prince Architects

“Having been a PlacED Ambassador for a number of years, I have seen first hand the amazing work the organisation does empowering young people to become involved in shaping the places around them. The built environment belongs to us all, yet careers in professions such as architecture can often seem out of reach for many. Initiatives such as the Digital Academy are invaluable in breaking down social and demographic barriers to entering the sector, creating an inclusive environment for students to develop, ultimately leading to a more diverse industry that benefits everyone. It is therefore a pleasure to be able to support the Academy and help to keep this good work going.”

Profile

Prince Architects is a small practice based in Liverpool’s Baltic Triangle, working on a diverse range of projects from private houses, to listed buildings and commercial properties. We take a collaborative approach to design, working closely with clients to understand and explore their aspirations and project potential. This process is underpinned by thoughtful, environmentally responsible architecture, that adds value for both client and place. Beyond the traditional practice work, we recognise the importance of inspiring the next generation of built environment professionals, demonstrated by our involvement with PlacEd, the University of Liverpool School of Architecture and the RIBA Student Mentoring Scheme.

David Miller Architects

An inclusive culture and creating social value lie at the heart of our practice, so relationships with the communities that we work in really matter. Working alongside PLACED to help deliver their inspiring programme, we are proud to be able to contribute to their excellent work creating opportunities locally here in the North West; and we really enjoy it too!

Profile

At David Miller Architects, we place equal value on design and delivery excellence and are recognised as industry leaders in developing innovative, technology-led solutions to solve complex problems around design, cost and programme. Our clients include private developers, local authorities, housing associations, schools and workspace providers as well as special clients like Claire House Children’s Hospice here in Liverpool. Claire House was our very first client when, 2 years ago, we returned to our roots and opened our office in the city. As with our other clients, we’re working together with the Claire House team to make the most of their site and precious funds to create high quality spaces for everyone who will spend time in them.
