LCE architects is a highly successful practise of architects, designers and thinkers operating in the fields of architecture, urbanism, research and development. LCE work spans from UK, North Africa, Middle East and Brasil with visions of projects further afield.
LCE a design led practice was founded in 1990 and has grown into a leading design office with the technical and creative expertise to respond to complex challenges of contemporary architectural design and construction. The practice employs over 30 staff with their head office in Brighton, UK and overseas offices in Tripoli Libya, Sao Paulo Brasil and planned office in the Middle East. Our team of architects, engineers, interior designers and graphic designers include creative and technically accomplished staff with local and international expertise who can deliver total solutions for public and private sector clients in key markets.
Our work and experience includes a diverse portfolio of international award winning projects and consultancy across 5 continents. This work is managed from our UK office and is supported overseas by joint ventures with local practices in the respective countries. Collaboration, with the client, the stakeholders, fellow professionals and where appropriate other architectural practices, is a central tenet of the practice’s philosophy and has led to the strong joint venture partnership.
Innovation is at the core of what we do. We employ people with proven track records in engineering, marketing and project management who work alongside our architects and designers to provide a diverse and complimentary skill base. We use the team’s problem solving skills in a creative process that enables us to offer innovative solutions to our designs and consultancy services we provide.
Our main objective with any design is to provide the Client with new, original concepts and a pragmatic architecture which maintains visionary ambitions. For all projects we strive to go beyond standard solution and to refine and develop new typologies. LCE philosophy rejects any rush to architectural form. It is our proven experience that by taking adequate time to engage with the Client the design process can be accelerated to provide buildings of greater quality for a given budget and on time. Through research and looking at precedents during the initial phase, the key issues are identified. During every phase of the design process, LCE collaborates with the client, consultants and other stakeholders through a series of brainstorm sessions, presentations and workshops.
