  • Beautifully illustrated with a range of projects from across the UK, Europe and Australasia, this book shows how to design places for living, staying, eating and working the Conran way. 
  •  Provides insight into Conran + Partners’ holistic way of working, as their team of architects and interior designers combine to reinvent existing buildings and spaces, such as the iconic CentrePoint in London, and to create award-winning new architecture and interiors, equally infused with a welcoming sense of context and place.

Architectural practice Conran + Partners aim to create spaces and places that improve the quality of people’s lives and the built fabric of our towns and cities. Adopting a multi-disciplinary approach which embraces architecture and interiors, the practice’s portfolio encompasses residential projects, hotels and restaurants, as well as work and retail spaces, mixed-use developments and
master planning with commissions across the UK, Europe and Asia.

The practice benefits from a long and prestigious history, with decades of experience gained under the leadership of Sir Terence Conran. Under his stewardship, the firm was responsible for iconic designs ranging from Bluebird Café and Quaglinos through to Butler’s Wharf and
The Design Museum. This book shows how the current team at Conran & Partners is building upon this rich heritage, while also taking the firm onwards into new sectors and fresh parts of the world, embracing 21st-century challenges.

With a stated ambition to ‘create spaces that evoke a welcoming sense of place where communities can thrive’, there is a particular respect for functionality and practicality, fused with a sophisticated approach to aesthetics and materiality. Context, too, is always a vital consideration, whether seen in terms of the history and provenance of an existing building, or the wider neighbourhood. Drawing on a range of projects from around the world, the book celebrates a diverse range of spaces within the three main sections: Home, Pleasure and Place.
